It's #FruitsAndVeggiesMonday once again, and I wanted to share one of my family's favorite foods, my spicy okra curry.
The okra isn't the least bit slimy, so you'll find this recipe an easy way to get your kids to eat okra too.
OKRA CURRY 👨🍳 ITAL RECIPE
🍋🥕 #FruitsAndVeggiesMonday 🥑🥔
Okra is one of the reasonably affordable foods in Suriname, and now that I think about it, okra seems to be relatively affordable wherever it is grown.
Also known as "ladies' 🖖 fingers" by some countries, okra is chocked full of nutrients and antioxidants, and can even lower your risk of heart disease. I hate to admit the reason we a lot of okra is simply the price per kilo, but at least it happens to be healthy also.
Carbon is your friend in this recipe. You actually want to burn the okra a bit, but not too much, for a roasted smoky flavor.

This recipe is fairly simple, but super delicious. The key is getting some charring on your okra so that the curry takes on a roasted flavor.
If you aren't psychopaths like us, you don't have to add the two Madame Jeanette chilies to this recipe.
"What, no garnish?" Yes, I dropped the bar on this one. Normally I'd make a chili flower or sprinkle some culantro, but this is soulfood, it doesn't need dressing up.
Satisfied customers are always important, and Monkey-B of the @KidSisters is among the most satisfied of customers.
You don't need to add the Madame Jeanette chili peppers, most people would find the recipe spicy enough, but our family is a little crazy.
