Okra has a very special place in the Asian cuisine. Every Asian country has their version of cooking okra but ofcourse India has way too many of them. The one here is a very quick spiced stir fry version which goes really well with rotis or parathas or even with daal and rice. Incase you are looking for inspiration, you can cook Lasooni Daal  with steamed Basmati Rice and this Okra will be a great companion.

There are other versions of making Okra like in a mustard flavoured gravy or yoghurt flavored gravy to name few of them. But this recipe uses no onion or garlic thus qualifying for a Sattvik diet (Yogi Meal).
