Finally! This last month had been a super crazy one for me, we moved to our new home and long story short it was a one gigantic move. Even though I have managed to make my home look settled in and cozy there is just too much that is still needed to be done. We still have boxes to be unpacked, closets to be organized and zillions of tasks to be done before we can finally get our life back to routine. Last couple of days I had absolutely no energy to even enjoy my meal forget about cooking but I am so happy that finally I am back in my kitchen cooking and enjoying home cooked meals.
They say the first thing that you should cook in the new kitchen is a sweet-dish; blessing your new nest with sweetness and love. But I decided to go the other route; eating out day after day had left me craving for some crazy good home cooked comfort and that is just what I decided to make. My Meat & Okra Curry is the first dish I cooked in my new kitchen, a simple and delicious touch of comfort.
I know for many people okra is not a to-go vegetable but for me it is a vegetable that I grew up eating and loving the most. Whatever form it was prepared I was always a happy camper to see it. My dad is the one who got me hooked on curried okra with meat. A simple tomato based curry with wonderful flavors is an ultimate form of comfort. The trick here is to add the okra towards the last few minutes of cooking to prevent it from breaking down while cooking.
For the meat part you can actually use any red meat of your choice. My preferred meat for this dish is either goat or lamb but this goes very well with beef too. You may think that this takes a long time to cook but that’s actually the time needed for meat to get tender. Otherwise this is a very simple and easy to cook curry. If you have a pressure cooker you can totally cook the meat in it and then once the meat is done you just remove the lid and go with the recipe the same way.
So my dear friends I hope you will give this recipe a try and once again sorry for being away for so long. Love!
