Spicy Roasted Okra

Okra is one of my favorites vegetables. I almost always make fried okra which requires a lot of oil. So decided to try this really simple roasted okra recipe that is healthy and easy to make. The final product was quite tasty as well.


Whole or sliced okra
Sliced onions (optional)
Salt and chilli powder to taste
a touch of turmeric
1 tbsp olive oil


Drizzle olive oil over the okra. Add turmeric, salt and red chilli powder and loosely mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Meanwhile preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lay out the seasoned okra on a flat baking plate and roast in oven for 30-40 minutes. After about 20 minutes, rotate the okra to allow even roasting.


Enjoy hot with some basmati rice or roti!
