Wednesday: Okra in Yogurt Sauce
Okra in yogurt sauce with whole-wheat pita. The recipe (bendakaya-perugu kura) is from one of our favorite food bloggers, Indira of Mahanandi.
Apparently, there are many people who don't like okra. Those people are crazy. Just saying.
How could you not like this precious little vegetable?
The common objection to okra is that it's rather slimy. In some recipes, that's actually desirable, but there are techniques to minimize the slime. The trick in this dish is to let the okra slices cook undisturbed instead of stirring them frequently - that allows a nice crust to form.
