This makes a wonderful accompaniment to a spicy main dish. It is also good as a vegetarian main course for 2, especially when served with Indian–style pulse or lentil dishes and warm naan. Also known as ladies' fingers or bhindi, okra is used extensively in Indian cooking.

Yogurt spiced with garlic and mint, then mixed with raw vegetables and high–protein lentils, is delicious spooned onto warmed naan. A few coriander and mint leaves on top add a touch of freshness, and a dab of chutney or lime pickle on the side gives texture and extra flavour.

Indian-style korma curries are loved the world over. This version is quite mild, so add more korma paste if you like a bit more heat, or experiment by using another Indian curry paste. Serve with a warm Indian bread, such as wholemeal naan bread or chapattis.
