It is easy to see why the long, tapered pods of okra have the name lady's fingers, although they are also known as bamia, bhindi and gumbo. Okra is widely used to add texture to soups and stews in India, the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean and Louisiana. It makes a very good accompaniment to curries and other spicy dishes and combines particularly well with tomatoes.
