Good one !, Member purple_razor

This is a delicious okra recipe. It is easy, simple to make yet tastes good. I tried this recipe separately, with wine and balsemic vinegar (2 table spoons) . Though both had nice finish, I prefer balsemic vinegar for better taste than white wine. I would try this again Thanks Purple_Razor
