Recipe of Okra with Tomatoes

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Freshly Ground Black Pepper 1/8 Teaspoons
Salt To Taste
Ground Coriander 1 Teaspoons
Medium-sized Tomatoes, Peeled And Coarsely Chopped 2 Numbers
Medium-sized Onions, Peeled And Cut 2 Numbers
Garlic, Peeled And Minced 4 Clove
Olive Oil 6 Teaspoons
Fresh (or Frozen) Tender Okra 1-1/2 Pound
Lemon Juice 1 Teaspoons


Wash the okra and trim it. (To trim the okra, cut off a small section at the tip. The stem end looks prettiest if trimmed in a conical shape.)
Heat the oil in a 10- to 12- inch skillet over a medium flame. Put in the garlic and onions. Stir and fry until onions turn translucent, turning the heat down if necessary. Put in the okra. Stir and fry for another minute. Now put in all the remaining ingredients plus 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer. Cover, turn heat to low, and cook gently for 15 to 20 minutes or until okra is tender. (Larger pods will take a bit longer to cook through.)

Serve either hot or cold.
