Desi.Foods's picture
Ingredients
  Ground cumin 1 Tablespoon
  Turmeric 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dijon mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Okra pods 1⁄2 Pound (About 30 Small Pods)
  Vegetable oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

Mix the cumin, turmeric, chili powder, salt, and lemon juice in a small bowl.
Add the mustard and mix to make a rather wet paste.
Cut the stems off the okra pods.
Then split them three-quarters the way down.
Split them again, dividing the pods into four equal parts that are held together by the narrow end tip.
Pour a little of the paste into the openings, and spread it lightly over all but the narrow tip.
Sprinkle with salt.
Heat the oil in a small frying pan over low heat and fry the pods, covered, until they are tender, about 10 minutes, turning them once.
