When I prepare fresh okra, I always cut off the tips and the stems.
Also, make sure you wash the cut okra thoroughly; otherwise, too much
of the okra liquid (kids call it the gooey, slimey stuff) will get
into the dish.

1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 large onion, chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
3 tomatoes, chopped
1 green chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 pound okra
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1-3/4 cups canned chickpeas, drained
Salt and pepper to taste

In a frying pan, melt the butter and saute the onion and garlic until
the onion is lightly browned. Then, add the remaining ingredients,
stirring occasionally. Heat well and serve.
