Recipe: Okra Curry
Chef Tin Vuong's restaurant Little Sister brings a little bit of the San Gabriel Valley to the beach community of Manhattan Beach. What does that even mean, you ask? It means you get an okra curry of contrasting colors, textures, and flavors. Enjoy!
Makes 4 servings
8 large eggs
1/4 cup peanut or vegetable oil
3-4 medium thinly-sliced shallots
1 large white or yellow onion, peeled and diced
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1-2 bird's eye chilies, thinly sliced
4 cloves of garlic, minced

½ pound (8 ounces) okra, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 plum tomatoes, diced
Salt, to taste
2 cups water
1 teaspoon fish sauce (or substitute with soy sauce)

Boil and peel the eggs and set aside. Fry shallot slices in oil; remove and reserve.
Stir fry onion, turmeric and chili. Then add garlic and ginger. Stir in tomato paste, then add curry powder, okra, tomatoes, and a pinch of salt. Stir continuously. Add water and fish sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 8-10 minutes.
