Serves 2 Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Frozen okra 100g
Japanese curry roux cubes 2
Chicken stock 200ml
Soy sauce 1 tbsp

Method

1
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.
4
Cook for 2-3 minutes. If it gets too thick, add some water. It's ready when it's your preferred consistency.

Tips & Note

This is not really a recipe, as it's such a simple dish. But I wanted to show how quick and handy frozen okra is.
