I didn't think I like okra, Member jdine1969

It was great and I will make it again and often. I only used 1/4 diced onion and 1 cup of the sliced okra. I was heavy on the seasoning because I love curry and tumeric is so good for you. This was the second time I cooked okra and the first time I was able to eat it...and really enjoy it! Slime is not my favorite texture and this was not slimy at all. Thanks for the healthy, yummy recipe.
