Ladyfingers Recheio | Stuffed Okra
Love those slimy, slippery little suckers of Okra. This recipe removes that gooey oozy stuff by pre salting. Yum.
|10 or more Okra||Rechad Masala to stuff||a little canola oil for frying|
Beforehand: Slit the Okra through the middle to the top, but without splitting in two. Apply salt inside the slit. Set aside to drain for at least a couple of hours. Make the Rechad Marsala.
At the time: If the okra seem too salty, rinse them briefly. Stuff the okra with a little of the rechad masala. The masala is warmly hot, so be judicious.
In a frying pan or wok, add a little oil and fry the okra until cooked. Note that Okra can be cooked in this way without stuffing.
