Okra In Soy Sauce

Monday, August 18, 2008

I love Okra in any form. Iam always on the lookout for new recipes when it comes to okra. I happened to come across this recipe in another blog. The moment read it, I knew I was going to prepare this one. Okra & Soy Sauce, both my favourites is a rare combination.
I tweaked the recipe a little, to taste the Indian taste buds. Iam sure, all Okra lovers will enjoy this. Here it is:

Preparation Time: 20 mins

  1. Okra - 1 cup, cut into pieces of 1 inch in length
  2. Soy sauce - 3 tbsp
  3. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  4. Nigella seeds/Kallonji - 1 tsp
  5. Chaat Masala - 1 tsp
  6. 2 -3 Red Chillies - Broken
  7. Salt - 1/2 tsp
  8. Oil


  • Bake Okra in the oven for about 5 minutes at 210 C to reduce the stickiness
  • Heat oil in a heaby bottomed pan, Add cumin, nigella seeds & Red chillies
  • Add okra & saute at regular intervals, till it is completely cooked
  • Add Chaat Masala & Soy Sauce & Salt & cook on low flame for another 2-3 minutes

Serve HOT with Rice/Roti .. Enjoi !!!

Note: I did not add much salt as there is enough salt in chaat masala & soy sauce. You could increase/decrease the amount of soy sauce depending on your taste.
