Curried Okra and Potatoes

This is a tasty meal that also has some great health benefits. I love okra for many reasons, and one of them being it's great for blood sugar levels. The turmeric in this dish is also fantastic for it, too. I hope you give this dish a try.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Steps:

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, cover potatoes with water and microwave on high for 4 minutes. This will partially cook them and remove some of their starch.
  2. While the potatoes are going, heat a large greased pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 4 minutes.

okay - I have always trimmed at least some of the hard end of the okra but you do not..

Does it still turn out okay and all edible?
This sounds like a good way to use okra and I do like it - best fried but have to try and stay healthy so this is a better way as I do get tried of okra and tomatoes but you probably have an excellent recipe for even that old standby.
Thanks - I'll try it with turmeric.

Haha! You should go ahead and trim if that's what you do. The story to why I keep it intact is I absolutely hate when the innards leak out because it changes the consistency of the dish by a lot. When I eat it, I don't eat that part. :)

I am sure you can trim them perfectly without cutting in, but I often do and then I lose an okra! ;)

That's the reason I'm asking about your 'method' as I'm never too old to change my 'ways'. I just have always cut some off and occasionally - as you say - one or two open and almost ruin the dish.

I'm going to try it your way soon.
