Ingredients

Frozen okra 100g
Japanese curry roux cubes 2
Chicken stock 200ml

I used this frozen bhindi (okra) from Tesco.
2
Put the frozen okra straight into a heated frying pan (no oil) to defrost until soft.
3
Add the chicken stock and curry roux cubes and soy sauce. Stir well.

Cook for 2-3 minutes. If it gets too thick, add some water. It's ready when it's your preferred consistency.
