  • Slice up your okra and onion if you haven’t already. Add 1 teaspoon of oil to a 9×11 inch or similar sized baking dish and brush all over

  • Put okra on one side of the baking dish and onion on the other half.

  • If the onions are browning too much, then mix the okra and the onion instead of keeping them on separate sides and continue to bake for another 5-10 minutes.

  • Remove the baking dish from the oven. Add in the turmeric and salt and mix in. Add in the tomato and few sprinkles of water and mix well and even it out then bake again for 10-15 minutes or until the okra is cooked to your preference.

  • Then take the pan out from the oven. Garnish with some cilantro and lemon juice . serve with masoor dal tadka, Urad dal, moong dal or curries and Some rice, or flatbread.

Notes

You want to use a thick baking dish for baking the okra so that the okra and onion don’t burn quickly, as we are baking it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
You also want a baking dish that’s large enough where the okra and onion are not piled more than about 1 1/2 layers. If they are like 2-3 layer deep, then the okra will get soggy and slimy and also take much longer to bake.  they will reduce once baked to about a single layer.
