Stir-Fried Ladies Fingers

Stir-Fried Ladies Fingers
While visiting my close friend Dana I taste her crispy okra was so good and my hubby like it some much. I prepared it few time at home and it was excellent, crispy and crunchy without a drop of oil..healthy too. then I was wondering how it will taste if i stir-fried it with onions just like normal vegetables. I got some fresh okra I got from the Indian store and gave it a shot..It was very good and here I am sharing that recipe with you. A big thanks to you Dana for sharing the recipe with me..and thanks to me for my creativity hehehhe..
