  2. I love okra in many ways... okra curry?? hmm.. sound good! :D

  3. I love okra and was thinking of doing an okra recipe myself. But every time I go to the store the okra looks less than appealing. This recipe looks wonderful and the picture looks mouthwatering. I love the tip of painting with the okra. I must try that with my kids. : )
