Usually I go for the frozen okra available year-round, but, I found some fresh okra for a reasonable price at the grocery store and couldn't resist. Steamed Fingerling potatoes are kids' current fad food so I had a bag of them handy.
Some fresh cherry tomatoes and walla walla pearl onions from the garden, plus the curry leaves from the local Burmese store made this delicious spicy side dish which is best enjoyed with plain brown rice and plain yogurt.
Heat some olive oil or sesame oil in a pan, saute some onions, then add the cut okra, curry leaves, and cherry tomatoes, some salt and curry powder (or any favorite seasoning), a splash of water, cover and cook till okra is almost done.Then add the par-cooked fingerling potatoes, stir well. Cook tell vegetables are done. Garnish with cilantro if preferred. Serve warm.
