    ooh i LOVE Okra! Also used a lot in Malaysian, Mediterreanian, Arab, Indian dishes. My grandma use to make this sweet chicken curry with okra and tomatoes.. my favourite! miss it so much :(

    Also as a kid brought up in Malaysian public school, we use to use cut up Okra, (cut thick round slices) and big enuf so u can use it as a paintstamp! The patterns are very nice.. u dip the cut okra into paint and then stamp your art paper (combining also with cut potato with designs cut into it..)

    Okra actually is not a ‘vegetable’ but a part of the flower. I grew them in Queensland, and the flowers reminded me of the Hibiscus, and the ‘fruit’ is picked soon after the flower finishes

    Abelmoschus esculentus, commonly known as okra or lady’s finger, is a flowering plant valued for its edible green fruits. The name okra is of West African origin and is cognate with “ókùrù” in Igbo, a language spoken in what is now known as Nigeria. The species is occasionally referred to by an early, now incorrect synonym, Hibiscus esculentus L.
