Spicy "freestyle" curry with okra

This dish was named "freestyle curry" by Dominik, as once again I had only cross-read a recipe I had found somewhere, then bought different ingredients and cooked it as I felt it would come out nicely. And it sure did! So here we go:

Ingredients (4 portions)

200g okra

200g carrots

350g potatoes

150g mushrooms

1 onion, chopped

1 can of tomato (in pieces, not puree) or 2 large tomatoes, cut in dices

1 chili / 1-2 tbsp chili powerd

2-3cm / 1 inch fresh ginger, chopped 

2-3 garlic, chopped

1 tbsp coriander powder

1/2 tbsp turmeric powder

1/2 - 1 tbsp Garam Masala


vegetable oil

fresh cilantro/coriander 


How to?

Rinse okra, dry them with kitchen paper, remove base and stalks and chop in 1cm pieces

Peel and cut potatoes in dices, fry with vegetable oil about 10 minutes in a large pan. Add okra and fry until both potatoes and okra are soft (okra will not be very slimy if there is no water involved in the frying process). Remove and set aside. 

Add oil again if needed, fry the onion until translucent. Add garlic, ginger and keep frying for about 5 minutes. Add one after the other the chopped chili and spices, followed by the tomatoes and mushroom. 

Once you found the right spiciness for your taste, add again the okra and potatoes, and stir well. 

Garnish with cilantro and serve with rice or naan. 

Perfect to be reheated!

Also open for more freestyling... in the version below I also added a handful garden peas.

Ready to be served!
