Fried Okra is a tasty vegetable
Once you know how to cook it, it's tasty. Frozen is handy too. I would like to see frozen karela (bitter melon) back in store again. Deep frieded karela slices are lovely. Fresh juice from the karela fruit/vegetable is a known medicine to help beat diabetes.
Look out for firmness and all green.
If the okra looks a bit black in parts it’s because is past it’s freshness, I have been delivered okra that was not fresh. I did not complain as it’s a new vegetable. To be edible it must be green and firm. I have lived abroad and know of this veg.
