Okra masala is an interesting side dish for roti. It is very simple and easy to prepare, which does not require any grinding process and can be done in very less time. I learnt this from my friends and gave some twists to the original recipe to keep it simple. It came out really well and it was more than I expected. And here is the recipe.
