  • 1 pound okra
  • 2 sliced onions
  • ½ tsp nigella seeds/kalonji
  • 3-4 sliced green chilies
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp dried mango powder/kachri powder
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 tsp whole coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp aniseed or saunf
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil


  1. Mix up all the ingredients

  2. Heat 3-4 tbsp oil in a saute pan and when it starts to shimmer add all the ingredients and cook on medium high heat for 4-5 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat a little and cook partially covered, stirring occasionally until cooked through. Do not stir too often because that will break the okra

  4. When it is done (15-20 minutes) then add a squeeze of lemon juice and adjust seasoning.
