    Have you tried this with frozen okra? I use the frozen baby okra in my meals…works wonderfully and tastes authentic… Like the ones in Pakistan.


    • I never tried Frozen, since I ate it once or twice at other places, and I could feel that the texture was off, either it was too mushy or too stiff. just wasn’t like the fresh Okra at all :-(…but yeah, if you know how to make it well and your family likes it, then sure, why not 🙂
