This is okra in coconut milk curry. Very simple to make and great with rice and naan for a complete meal. A spicy and very creamy vegan curry that will even please non-vegans. If you like more spice, use more peppers or other spices to your liking.

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet; cook and stir the bell pepper in the hot oil until softened slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir the jalapeno peppers, ginger, garlic, and bay leaves into the bell pepper; cook until fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with the coriander, red pepper, turmeric, cumin seeds, cardamom, black pepper, and cinnamon; cook and stir another 2 minutes. Add the tomato slices and raisins to the mixture; continue cooking 3 more minutes. Mix the okra thoroughly into the mixture to coat with the spices.
  2. Stir the coconut milk and water together in a small bowl; pour into the mixture. Cover the skillet and cook covered until the okra is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add water if needed to keep moist. Season with salt. Serve warm.

I used only 1T oil, then I added onions and some more okra to the recipe. I used ground coconut and water instead of coconut milk. This made a wonderful meal!

I love eating and cooking Indian food, and this was a nice change from the go-to chick peas and veggies. The okra gives it a great, almost sweet flavor. I used a little more jalapeno (I like things spicy), and 2 cups coconut milk so I had more sauce for my naan. I would make this again. The leftovers were even better.
