Okra with mango & lentils
Put the lentils a saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to the boil, and boil for a couple of minutes, then reduce the heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes until soft, topping up with water if necessary. Drain.
Heat the oil in a wok or large heavy frying pan. Add the onion seeds and fry until they begin to pop. Add the onions and sauté until they are golden. Reduce the heat and add the ginger, garlic, chilli powder, turmeric and coriander. Stir for a minute or so.
Slice the mango, then add with the okra. Stir well, then add the chillies. Stir-fry for about 3 minutes until the okra is well cooked. Stir in the cooked lentils and tomato, then cook for a further 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
