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.
