Okra


Originally from Africa and also very popular in Indian, okra are also known as ‘ladies fingers’. They are narrow green-skinned ribbed pods that contain rows of edible creamy seeds that ooze a viscous liquid when cooked. They have a mild-bean like flavor when cooked. Look for firm, small green pods (a brownish tinge indicates they are stale) no longer than 4-6 cm and avoid any that appear shriveled or feel soft when gently squeezed.
