Recipe photo
  • 30 okra pods , trimmed and sliced on the diagonal
  • 4 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 Lb can shrimp , drained and diced very finely
  • 4 small red chilies (adjust to suit heat tolerance)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Assemble all the ingredients and have it ready to go. Heat a wok on high heat, add the oil and let it get hot (not smoking though). Fry the diced shrimp and garlic quickly until the shrimp starts to crisp, be careful not to let the garlic brown. Add the chilies and stir-fry quickly. Make sure area is well ventilated because the chilies can make everyone within wok-radius start coughing and sneezing. Add the okra and toss and stir. Keep stir-frying until the okra is tender. If the mix in the wok starts to look too dry, add a bit of water (about a teaspoon will suffice). When okra is tender (it should still be bright green), take off the heat (be careful not to overcook).
