Last weekend at the market I saw a basket withokra fruit, and it got my attention. I noticed that only foreign people bought this, so I became even more interested. Okra looks like and tastes a bit like zucchini, but different! The plant originally comes from Ethiopia, but nowadays is grown in most warm tropical countries. In most western countries it is quite unknown, although it is sold at markets or Asian shops.
After some research on the Internet I came up with the following recipe: okra with Thai yellow curry. It is a spicy dish, because of the curry and chilies. If you want a less spicy version, you can add some cream or milk, or just leave the chilies out.
Okra is a popular health food due to its high fiber, vitamin C, and folate content. Okra is also known for being high in antioxidants. Okra is also a good source of calcium and potassium. (Wikipedia)
