KD's base, Lester's interpretation

150g (half of a) onion, sliced
1 t cumin seeds
1/8 t tumeric
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 finger chilis, deseeded and minced
1" piece ginger, peeled and minced
3 good-sized tasty tomatoes
1/2 t salt, or to taste
300g okra, trimmed and chopped in half
1 t garam masala
some freshly-chopped cilantro

Fry onion in some oil on medium until it starts to turn brown. Add cumin seeds and continue frying until they brown and pop. Add tumeric and turn the heat down to lowish. Add garlic-chili-ginger (GCG, as they say) and stir as it simmers gently. After 30 sec to a minute ish, add tomatoes and salt and increase the heat. Simmer and stir, letting liquid reduce. You can add any veggies you want at this point, but we're adding okra, which has been meanwhile frying in a separate pan in a bit of oil until brown. Add that okra and simmer for 10-15 min. Stir in garam masala and cilantro.
