  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until softened and dark brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste until no lumps remain. Add the okra, and sprinkle with turmeric, salt, and pepper. Pour in the water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the okra is very tender and the sauce has thickened slightly, 15 to 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper again before serving.

A simple yet savory Afghan dish!

Loved this recipe! I did make one alteration. I used canned diced tomatoes in addition to the tomato paste! Fantastic recipe. I will definitely be making this again! I served over rice.

This tasted really great. Took it to a family dinner and it was a hit. It was really good to eat with rice.

I made it according to recipe. I had some smoked sausage I had sliced up and cooked up for my Hubby, so I added it to this dish after it was all done… and he loved it!
