burrp! & Knorr Challenge Part I – Stir Fried Okra

I’ve not been a ready-to-eat meals fan except for the soups and packed soups for me mean Knorr. But few days ago I tried few of Knorr’s easy-to-cook Chinese meal packs as a part of burrp! and Knorr project. The idea was to create something exciting with those ready-made mixes. So on a Sunday I decided to treat the Husband to Chinese lunch and tried few recipes and took step by step pictures. Yes, I’ve been inspired by The Pioneer Woman‘s blog lately and tried taking pictures while cooking like she does. Quite a task I must say and hats off to her for doing this.
So here’s the first recipe – Stir Fried Okra with Knorr’s Chinese Chili mix, very simple, very tasty and a quick fix starter for a party.

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Serves: 2
Okra – 250 gms
Garlic – 8 cloves (finely chopped)
Green chilies – 2 (finely chopped)
Knorr easy to cook Chinese Chili – 11/2 tbsp
Soy sauce  – 1 tsp
Sugar – ½ tsp
Oil – 1 tsp
Wash and pat dry the okra.

Cut them into big pieces.
Sprinkle the Knorr easy to cook Chinese Chili powder on the okra pieces and toss so that the powder coats them properly.
Heat oil in a pan and add garlic and green chilies. Fry for a minute.
Add okra pieces and fry them for 10-15 minutes. Don’t stir them too much and don’t cover and cook.

Mix soy sauce and sugar and pour over the okra. Fry for just one more minute, remove from the pan and serve.

Look at the lovely green colour. You won’t get it if you cover and cook and that crunchiness too.
