This okra dish is totally non slimy, spicy and flavorful. You will love it with naan or parantha.
Have some spicy pickle on the side and enjoy your lunch/dinner or even weekend  breakfast.

Squeezing some lemon juice while cooking okra not only removes the sliminess of okra but also enhances its taste. The fennel seeds really add a lot of flavor to the dish.
