South Indian Potato-Okra Curry (Bhindi Curry)
Wash and dry the okra completely before cutting into rounds.
Using a wok is faster, but if you don't have one, a regular skillet or saute pan is fine.
Potatoes may be omitted - use 1 pound of okra instead.
Do not use a lid at any point while frying the okra. This will trap steam, which turns to water, which will cause the okra to become slimy. No lid! No water! Don't even add the onions until the okra is completely crisped up!
