Fresh Cream - 2 tbsp
Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp

How to make:
Wash, clean and chop onion, tomato, Garlic. Cut okra 2" in lengthwise and carefully slit them slightly, otherwise the seeds comes out and spoils the look of the curry.

In the same pan with remaining oil, saute garlic, then onion and finally comes tomato. Cook them all in medium flame evenly. and stirring them often.
