Looking for an alternative to rice? Use bhindi masala instead. Okra is a highly nutritious antioxidant-packed vegetable that’s rich in fibre. It has specific benefits to ensure optimal digestive health, along with powerful anti-inflammatory spices.
Top Tip: Okra is best cooked from room temperature. To make sure it turns out crispy, pat dry before frying to remove extra moisture.

Team this stew up with Italian-style couscous for a real taste of the Mediterranean during the cold UK winter months.
Top Tip: If you’ve used too much water when making your couscous, leave it uncovered for any excess water to evaporate.
