Can't find frozen okra anywhere. Any suggestions?

I was browsing recipes and this sounds exactly like what my friend from India made for me last week. It was the first time I had tasted okra, and it was delicious!

I agree with Ashley's comment. Okra is typically slimy, but cooked this way it was perfect. I cooked mine longer and let the onions caramelized and it enhanced the overall flavor. Definitely in my recipe box now!

I have always been cautious of okra...the texture gave me the creeps, but this recipe was delicious! I will be making this many times over. Thanks for a new perspective on okra!
