Grow, Harvest & Cook Cute Stubby Okra From My Garden

There are now 6 stubby okra plants growing in my garden. The seeds were given to me by a friend.
Stubby okra plant growing in my garden.
The ones in black plastic bags were the daikon plants.
These okra plants are fast growing plants and their big leaves are blocking the sun from reaching the daikon plants. I had to shift out the daikon plants.
These stubby okras matured very fast.
They need to be harvested before they become hard and fibrous.
 I have to check on the stubby okras every morning.
Time to harvest this okra.
For more tender texture, better to harvest earlier.
I get to harvest these okras once every 2 to 3 days. They are good for cooking with sambal belacan (spicy dried prawn paste).
I made sambal belacan and packed in small containers to be kept in the freezer. Whenever I needed some, I just take out 1 container to let it thaw on the lower shelf of the fridge the night before.
 I used one portion of the sambal belacan to slow stir fry in some oil. Yums!
 Steamed stubby okras and eggplants to eat with the fried sambal belacan.
I also cooked curry beef because I was craving for some.
A spicy and satisfying dinner for hubby and I.

For the Lord says, "Because he loves me, I will rescue him;

I will make him great because he trusts in my name.

When he calls on me, I will answer;

I will be with him in trouble and rescue him and honor him.

I will satisfy him with a full life and give him my salvation."

(Psalm 91:14-16, The Living Bible-TLB)

  7. We like our okra fried....roll it in a mixture mainly of cornmeal and a bit of flour mixed in, and then fry. So, so good.
