One thing that I can’t resist, one thing that I can’t ignore and one thing that I look upon to when it comes to food is Okra or Ladies’ finger. I know it’s not interesting for many. I know many don’t like it. I know it’s not something special or something for which you can be longing for. But for me it’s one thing or one vegetable that is my all time favorite.
I can eat Okra all four days 24*7. It might sound crazy for some and even weird but this is how it is. The best part is that me, my husband and my kids, all four of us love eating okra.
Okra, also known as Bhindi in Hindi is a green vegetable full of macro and micronutrients. There are numerous health benefits of okra. It has a mild and distinct taste with slimy or sticky texture.
There are various ways of eating Okra and many different kinds of recipes are made with it. Some may like to eat it raw or some might cook it. Some may just stir fry them with turmeric and salt in mustard oil or some may add spices and make them flavourful.
My all time favorite is simple stir fried okra. It maintains the crispness of the vegetable and the color turns up really nice, dark green color. This recipe is made in very less amount of oil and still taste awesome.
Then what are you waiting for? If okra is your favorite or even if you like it a little bit, go grab a pound of okra and cook in any way you want to. Try some new recipe and enjoy this nutritious green vegetable.
