This turned out really delicious! I used regular flour instead of chickpea flour... I'm sure it's better with chickpea flour but I still really liked it.

You can add chili powder to make it spicier, and more chickpea flour to make it crispier. To avoid the stickiness, just be careful with how much you stir the okra (pre-cooking it in the microwave helps with this)

This is a great curry recipe. The flavors are mild yet aromatic. The okra comes out crispy and full of flavor. There is a slight (very slight) kick at the end that I'm sure could be dialed up (doesn't need to be dialed back) and tastes great. This is so much easier to cook than many Indian recipes I find in recipe books. Nice job and keep submitting more great Indian recipes!
