Trim the cone-shape tops from the okra, wash them, and dry them thoroughly with paper towels.

Cook gently until tender.
Add the okra and cook, tossing lightly, until they are slightly browned.
Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste, and the bag of coriander.
Cover the skillet and simmer gently until the okra is tender; this depends on its size and age.
