Okra is one of my wife favourite vegetables and she would buy it often from the wet market. This sambal dish is very suitable for vegetarian nasi lemak (coconut milk rice).
For a little extra flavour, I added deep fried tofu to the okra.
Tofu, 10 pc, deep fried
Shallots, 5 pcs, blended
Vegetarian oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon
Okra, 5 pcs, cut into slices
Chilli paste, 3 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste
Tamarind juice from 1 tablespoon tamarind
Olive oil or vegetable oil
Heat up pan and add in around 2 table spoons of olive oil. Sautee shallots until fragrant and add in the chilli paste. Stir fry for a short while. Add salt, sugar, tamarind juice and vegetarian oyster sauce. Fry until all the ingredients are well mixed. Add in the okra and little water. Fry for a short while and add in the tofu. Serve with Nasi Lemak (coconut milk rice).
