method and recipe here. I made it once before and the kids seemed to like it fine. Previously I'd been afraid to cook okra because I know it can get slimey but the key is to add it last and then cook it only until it becomes tender; not too long. Also, don't toss it around too much. It will hold its shape and firmness, and it adds an interesting texture to this otherwise soft curry. You may be seeing a lot of this and our other thermals for the next several weeks, at least until the weather starts warming up. Since discovering the practicality and usefulness of thermal food jars, I am hooked. Since there are so many veggies in the meal, I can pack the other dish with colorful fruit and fun Okinawan sweet potato cutouts.
