Grilled Chicken with pan fried okra

Ingredients

1 Tsp mustard seeds
1 Tsp fennel seeds
1 Tsp of cumin seeds
1 Clove of grated garlic
1 tsp of grated ginger
Chopped 1 large red onion
350g of okra
2 sliced chicken breast
2 tsp of sunflower oil
Salt
Pepper



Method:

In a dry heated pan toast fennel, cumin and mustard seeds till you can smell the oils

Then add the oil, chopped onions, garlic and ginger mix. Fry on a low heat for 3minutes
Wash and dry the Okra
Chop the okra into little chunks


Add the okra to the spicy mix and stir gently. Cover the pot and steam the okra for about 8 minutes. Please do not stir too much as it will release the slimy okra juice. The Okra has to be el dente and hold its shape.



This will work as a perfect side dish. I pan fried strips of chicken for this dish. You can use any meat also. Enjoy!
