Bhindi subzi

1 Onion
1 big Tomato
1.5 lbs of okra
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp chilli powder
pinch of turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp panch phoran(Bengali 5 spice blend)
2-3 tbsp oil

Take half of the oil and splutter the cumin and panch phoran ingredients when oil is hot.  Add the onions and saute till they become nice brown in color.  Add little salt while the onion is cooking.  Follow it with the tomatoes and add more salt just needed for the tomatoes and also some chili powder and turmeric.  In the meanwhile, in a separate pan start cooking the bhindi and fry them until they become soft and done.  Now mix the fried onions and tomatoes to the Okra and stir further on high for a minute and turn it off.

Serve this with rice or chappatis.
