Garam masala lends Indian flavor to Charred Okra. Charred Okra is a great way to enjoy okra without frying it.

How to Make It

Step 1

Grate zest from 2 limes to equal 2 1/2 Tbsp.; squeeze juice from same 2 limes to equal 5 Tbsp. Cut remaining lime into 8 wedges.

Step 2

Toss together okra, next 5 ingredients, lime zest, and lime juice in a bowl. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Step 3

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove okra from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill okra, without grill lid, 10 to 15 minutes or just until tender and lightly charred, turning often. Sprinkle with cilantro; serve with lime wedges.

This is a great way to enjoy okra without frying it. We put the okra in a basket and set that directly on the gas grill grates for better charring. The whole family loved this recipe- will make it again soon.
