Okra Mushroom Recipe

  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 inch piece fresh gingerroot, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 fresh red chilies, seeded and chopped
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 green cardamom pods
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 (14 ounce) can peeled and chopped tomatoes
  • 1 lb mushroom, halved (or quartered, if large)
  • 8 ounces okra, washed, dried and trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

How to make Okra Mushroom:

Remove the seeds from the cardamom pods and grind in a mortar and pestle. Set aside. 2With either a stick blender or food processor, blend the garlic, ginger and chilies with 3 tablespoons of the water, until smooth. Set aside. 3Heat a large pan over medium to high heat, add the oil, and when hot, add the coriander and cumin seeds and allow them to sizzle for a few seconds. Add the ground cumin, cardamom and turmeric and cook for 1 minute. Add the garlic, ginger and chili paste, the tomatoes, the remaining water, mushrooms and okra. Mix well, bring to the boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. 4Uncover and cook the curry for 10 minutes more, or until the okra is tender. 5Serve hot, garnished with the cilantro and accompanied by rice and a tangy Indian relish.
