GETTING READY

4) With tongs, gently pick the okras one by one and place in the jars in such a way that the broad and narrow ends alternate.
5) Distribute the chiles, garlic, mustard and peppercorn between the two jars equally and pour the liquid leaving 1/4th inch of a gap between the lid and liquid. Seal the two jars tighly and store away for 2 to 3 weeks in a cool and dry place.

7) In another mixing bowl, add mayonnaise, oil, sour cream, caraway seeds, tobasco, salt and pepper.
8) Add the dressing onto the vegetable mixture and mix well. Place in the fridge for about 2 hours but serve at room temperature.
