Okra soup with crispy Okra is a simple and rich recipe which tastes amazing. A conventional dish with an unconventional recipe.

Now I know that Okra is not the first ingredient that pops up when thinking about soups. We think Okra’s slimy nature would be an impediment to the soup recipe. But let me assure you that this soup is not how you are imagining. Follow my recipe to the letter to have a deliciously filling soup that can also be considered as a full meal.

Personally, I love soups and I frequently make a variety of soups at home. Mr. Ping’s Noodle Soup and Carrot Green Soup are some of my other soup recipes. Most of the time, soups are for all seasons. But it is most appreciated during the winter season when you want something that is hot and filling on those cold winter nights. Generally, soups make great part of a meal. But the okra soup with crispy okra is a complete meal in itself. Whenever I make Okra soup that is it – I do not make anything else as this dish is extremely filling and wholesome.

About Okra Soup

This recipe has 3 main components

  • First is the soup broth made from milk and rice.
  • Second is Okra tadka
  • And third is crispy Okras

Let me tell you little bit about the components. While trying to perfect this recipe I tried to make this recipe with rice powder but the consistency did not turn out right. Next I tried it with rice paste and it turned out to be a great way to make this component.

Okra tadka is a strong flavored mix. This mix has to be strong as we do not add any extra flavors to milk mix. All the flavor that is in this soup is from okra tadka.

Crispy okra makes a great addition to creamy okra soup. The crunchy texture adds that something extra to this soup.

So, try out the recipe and let me know if this was your tummy to heart moment…
