Stir-fried Sambal Okra (Lady Finger)

With my stash of no-cook homemade sambal belacan in the fridge, this is an under 15-minute stir-fry that is sure to please okra (aka lady finger or lady’s fingers) and sambal chilli lovers. I totally love this simple version of spicy okra where I only used sambal belacan and garlic. You can tweak this recipe by adding shallots or dried shrimps for a more “hae bee hiam” (dried shrimp chilli paste) taste which is equally delicious. But this simple version satisfies my tummy and enable a tasty and spicy dish on the dinner table in almost no time at all.

Okra is a vegetable which you either love or steer clear of, due to its hairy skin and slimy texture when cut. Fortunately I belong to the okra fan club. One tip to reduce the inherent sliminess is to stir fry it briskly over a high heat wok.

  1. Those okra slices are so beautiful, tender and the sambal must give them a bit of a kick.

  2. So good with steamed rice! I love both stir-fry and steamed versions but most times, I know the “lazy” in me will call for the steamed version.

  3. I love okra, but do not buy often because my husband does not care for it…I like the idea of adding sambal to this stir-fried…delicious looking dish Wiffy.
    Enjoy your week :)

  4. The sambal makes it delicious.

  5. Which brand of sambal balacan you use? Thanks
