Indian Madras Okra

Indian Madras Okra
I love okra. It has high levels of vitamins A and C. Although fresh okra can be a little on the expensive side, the frozen okra is easy to make and much cheaper. Frozen okra is still healthy and has high levels of vitamins.


  • Frozen Okra
  • 1/4 chopped red onion
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2-3 small pieces of hing
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
