Vegetarian Sambal With Okra

Similar to the Nyonya Sambal Udang Lady's Fingers, but this is the vegetarian version.  I used the vegetarian sambal - [see recipe here] and the dried gluten crisps to replace the dried prawns.  Quite a delicious vegetable dish minus the cholesterol.
[serves 8]
600 gm lady's fingers - washed 
4-5 tbsp vegetarian sambal
50 gm dried gluten crisps
juice of 2 limes
salt and sugar to taste
150 ml water
  1. Blanch okra in boiling water until soft.  Drained and place on a serving plate.
  2. Add 2 tbsp oil into wok, add in vegetarian sambal and dried gluten crisps. Stir fry to mix.
  3. Add water and seasoning to taste.  Bring to boil, then simmer until the water is reduced to a thick consistency.
  4. Add lime juice to taste.
  5. Dish out and spread over blanched lady's fingers.

Hi Alice, from any stalls selling vegetarian food ingredients. Some Indian grocery shops also sell this in various sizes too.
