If you like spicy and tangy flavors in a dish, this recipe is for you.
Recipe source: Adapted from Suvir Saran’s Crispy Okra Salad
Preheat the oven to 350degrees.
Clean and pat dry the okra. Don’t spend much time drying, just a quick pat and dry will do.
Cut the okra into juliennes. I slice the okra into two along the middle. Hold the two halves and make long slices.
Spread the okra onto a baking sheet. I spread them onto my cast iron pizza stone.
To this, add turmeric powder (1/4tsp) and red chili powder ( 1/4 to 1/2 tsp), and salt to taste. I added some fresh crushed black pepper too. Drizzle some olive oil on top.
Mix everything together and spread onto a single layer.
Cook in the oven till the okra is cooked and starts to attain a brown shade. It took me about 20 minutes or so to get to this stage.
Remove from oven, and to this add some thinly sliced red onions and julienned tomato.
Add the juice of half a lemon, sprinkle with chaat masala. Mix well and serve.
One more okra dish in my efforts to win Satish over to the okra loving side.
