Okra & Shrimp 


A dozen+ large shrimp deveined 

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 + lb okra in halves

1 onion sliced 

3 gloves garlic minced 

1 tsp turmeric 

1/2 tsp coriander powder

Couple of chili peppers 




After cleaning the shrimp, pat dry. Toss with turmeric, chili powder and salt. 

Heat a pan with oil and add in shrimp. Brown on one side about a minute or two and flip. This is to get a sear on them before adding them to the okra. Once done, set aside. 

Add more oil to the pan and add in onions. Sautee a few minutes and then add in garlic. Season with salt. I use table salt, about 2 tsps. 

Add turmeric and coriander powder. 

Add okra and mix with the onions. Dont over mix to make mushy and don’t cover it with a lid. Get some color on the pieces.

*Tip – wash okras ahead of time before cutting. Make sure they are dry.This helps from not being too slippery/slimy. 

Add in chili peppers. Once the okras are done cooking about 10 mins, you can test one. You want it to be soft but still maintain its shape. 

Add in the cooked shrimps, give it a toss and turn off heat. Top with cilatro. 

All done to enjoy with some rice 🙂
