Gluten Free Masala Okra Recipe

I love okra prepared in this spicy tomato sauce, and find none of the typical “slimy” texture people often mention with this vegetable. If you’re not a fan of okra, you can substitute some or all with green beans – it’s equally delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon black mustard seeds
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon mild chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar or xylitol or 6 drops pure plain liquid stevia
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large tomatoes diced
  • 1 pound okra green beans, or a combination (washed and trimmed but not cut)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Instructions

  • In a large nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds and cook, stirring constantly, until the seeds begin to pop. Lower the heat to medium.
  • Add the onion and garlic and continue to cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the cilantro. Stir well so the okra is well-coated in the sauce. Lower heat to simmer, cover, and cook until the okra is just tender, about 10-15 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
