Curried Okra with Onions


1 pound okra, washed, trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, quartered and sliced
dash cayenne pepper, or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon mild curry powder, or to taste
salt and pepper, to taste

Heat the oil in a large heavy non-stick or well seasoned iron skillet; add okra and fry for 10 minutes, turning frequently to keep from sticking. When the okra is lightly browned, add remaining ingredients. Continue cooking for 3 minutes longer, or until onions are tender. Serves 6.
