Okra/ lady fingers is one of my most favorite vegetables since childhood. Making okra is not only simple and easy but it has almost no fat content and is rich in vit C, vit K, thiamin, folate and magnesium. So if you are on a diet, this okra masala will be a treat without you feeling guilty about gaining fat.
