Green Chillies: 6
Turmeric Powder: a pinch
Chilly Powder: 1/4 tsp
Salt: as needed
Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp
Mustard: 1/2 tsp

Heat oil and splutter mustard and cumin seeds.
Add the diced onion and saute till translucent.
Add the Okra, green chillies and mix everything and let it get cooked.
Halfway through, add the chilly powder and turmeric powder and give a proper mix.
Add salt and let it get slightly crisp but still green (by this time, the onions would have turned brown)
