Notes

  • If using fresh okra, wash your tender okra in cool water and drain in a colander. Make sure its dried very well to prevent the slimy texture. Also, don’t wash the okra until right before you are ready to slice and cook it; otherwise, it could get slimy. Dry it well.  Further, using a sharp paring knife, slice off the thicker end of the pod. Furthermore, cut off the pointy end of the pod. Then slice the okra crosswise into evenly spaced rounds about 1/2  inch thick each.
