2. Put the oil into a shallow casserole dish and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes until hot, then sprinkle in the sesame seeds and stir in the onions. Cover with a lid or with cling film, pulling back one corner to vent.
3. Microwave the onions on HIGH for 5-7 minutes until they are softened, then stir in the okra and the remaining ingredients.
