According to Madhur, okra doesn’t get its due: Many complain that the pods are slimy, but this is easily avoidable. When cooking with okra, make sure they’re fresh and crisp, and keep them dry before cooking. This recipe calls for cooking the okra with shallots. Small shallots are used widely in South Indian cuisine, but if you can’t track down small shallots, Madhur advises using three bulbs of the larger European varieties available in many markets.
