Africans like a wide and diverse diet – frequently including foods that are only available everywhere. This traditional recipe for Okra (or even Okro, as it's called in some portion of Nigeria) is one that may be created anywhere on the planet, as it uses components that could be found in any local shop.

 

The term "okra" stems from Africa and is referred to as "ladies fingers" in some nations. Though Okra originated from Africa, it's currently available around the globe. Some people today believe Okra alone is overly soft and sticky, however, when cooked properly, this makes for a delicious recipe.

When buying new okra, start looking for youthful pods free of lumps, tender but not soft, and no longer than 4 inches.

For making okra, you will need:

  • 2 Onions
  • 180g Oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 2 tsp of curry powder
