Unusual ingredients…Okra?!

It may be unusual to you, but to me I grew up eating Okra. I actually went through a mad phase of demanding my Mum to cook it once a week for me (is that weird?). My brother however is not a fan! I like to discover new ingredients whenever I can, otherwise I would just get stuck eating the same old thing.

Okra is a great vegetable, slightly weird and wonderful! Some people get put off by its texture or they don’t how to cook it. I grew up eating it chopped up with onions, potatoes, garlic, ginger, chilli and some indian spices. Served with some fresh chapatis, its delicious! There are loads of recipes out there with different variations, but this is how I have always eaten it. If you can’t make chapatis, it will taste just as good with some basmati rice or naan bread.

It’s good to mix it up in the kitchen. I get incredibly bored and don’t like to have the same old food week in week out. Unless its a classic, I will always try and adapt a recipe or try something different. That’s not to say it works every time though! Do you like to try different dishes each week? Let me know!
