Foods in Kilome – Okra

image times known as Ladies fingers. Planted mainly for exporters as people don’t fancy it’s waterish nature when cooked like a stew. But thanks to resident chefs here’s a very crunchy and juicy way its prepared in kilome [a bite gives you that crunchy dry taste just before a juice pours onto your tongue]


Roll the washed okra in a mixture of maize flour with little chilli (above sample had spice added)


Fry in shallow hot oil


Serve with rice and gently heated onion and tomatoes {all from local farms} plus local vegetables


Alternatively used to spice up locally available butter beans and used with fresh tomatoes.
