The first dish was an old favourite, of chicken saag. I tone down the heat a little, with a but less curry powder and chilli than asked, but otherwise stick much to the recipe in the book. I won't reproduce it here (buy the book!) but here's the potted version:
Wash and chop your okra into chunks.
Fry some onion seeds,
chilli and sliced onion.
Add turmeric and dessicated coconut.
Add the okra and stir-fry briskly.
Then stir in some yogurt, tomatoes and coriander before serving.
Finally, make the cat jealous!
