Okra (ladyfingers) (info from Sydney Morning Herald)

Would you believe that okra comes from a family that includes the hibiscus, China rose and hollyhock? Its wonderfully elegant slender tapering ridged appearance earning it the name of ladyfingers in parts of the world. Okra is the native of Ethiopia, taken to North America and the Caribbean through the slave trade in the 17th century. It spread to India and the Middle East in the early days of its international travel and is well-loved in India's regional dishes - stuffed with spices and fried, pan-fried with spices, fried and mixed with yoghurt, or cooked in a curry with other vegetables or fish (but not meat, unlike the Greek and Turkish cuisines). Okra didn't reach South East Asia until the 19th century, but now Malaysian cuisine abounds with fish curries (fresh or salted dried, fish cutlets, fillets or head) that also feature okra. Shrimp and okra also make a good curry.

Okra is a much maligned vegetable, which, badly cooked, falls into the same category as Brussel Sprouts. But cooked well, it is undeniably wonderful. It is the mucilaginous substance inside okra that gives the favourite okra dish of Nth America, gumbo, its characteristic silky, gelatinous texture. It is an essential ingredient of Jambalaya, and a favourite of the Greek kitchen where it is served with fresh tomato and onion. In curries, it is used whole, trimmed only of stalk, but keeping the conical top which is discarded at time of eating. The soft, slightly moist texture of the interior is part of its appeal.

Okra can also be cooked by stir-frying with a blachan-chilli paste or as sambal okra, the Nonya dish of blanched okra topped with a spicy paste of dried shrimp, finely sliced shallots and blachan-chilli paste with a generous squeeze of cumquat or lime juice.
