  1. Wash okra and wipe them with a dry kitchen cloth. If moisture on it is not wiped, while cutting and cooking we get gum stings.
  2. Mash the garlic in mortar and pestle with or without their skin. Normally I do it with skin only.
  3. Cut the edges of okra and chop them.
  4. Heat oil in a kadai till the fumes are up, fry little portions of okra pieces in it. 
  5. Once they are fried, become soft and the color changes remove them from the heat. Keep them aside.
  6. Repeat it with the remaining pieces.
