Okra Fried With Eggs is another of my mom’s favourite dish. It is a very delicious vegetarian dish. We grew up eating a lot of okra cooked in different ways. My parents planted a lot of okra and we reared a lot of chickens which produced eggs everyday so this dish is a common dish on the table. My mom used to tell us that okra is good for us. In Malaysia, okra is commonly called ”ladies’ fingers”.
Some people may not like the slimy feel or taste but if you cook it properly, it won’t be slimy. I’ll show you how to cook this simple, delicious dish and it is not slimy. It’s another of my family favourite that goes great with rice.
1 packet okra (about 200g)
2T fried shallot oil
1T oyster sauce
chopped chili (optional)
Wash and cut off the top ends of the okra and then slice them diagonally.
Heat up a frying pan. Add okra and then the fried shallot oil over it. Add a teaspoon of water to it. You will notice that the okra becomes slimy when you add the water. It’s ok. Just keep stirring. When it is almost dry, add a tablespoon of oyster sauce and continue to stir until it is no longer slimy. Knock in one egg and quickly stir through the okra. Dish up and serve hot. If you like, add some chopped red chili as topping.
