Plenty of people think okra is weird and slimy but when roasted this way — pretty much everything tastes better, including okra. Trust me, it’s easy to make and even more delicious to eat, you can’t eat just one!

First of all, I have roasted gram flour and combined it with different spices and mustard oil for coating okras. Next, I have coated okra with the prepared spices mixture. Lastly, I have baked them to make crispy okra.

FAQs

Can I make it without oven?

If you don’t have an oven, shallow fry chilies in a pan using 2 tbsp of oil.

How to deal with slime?

You can apply some lemon juice on the knife to reduce the slime. Make sure your hands, chopping board, and knife are dry.

What is dry mango powder used for?

Dried mango powder acts as a souring agent that cuts the sliminess and ensures okras are dry and crispy. You may also use lemon, juice, vinegar, or tamarind.
