Okra Stew with Olive Oil - Turkish Recipes

*1 lb okra, fresh or frozen
*1 cup tomato, diced/crushed
*1 onion, sliced in strips
*2 tbsp olive oil
*½ cup hot water
*1 tsp salt to taste
*1 tsp lemon juice
*½ tsp sugar
*Black pepper

In a pot, sauté onions with olive oil over medium heat. Stir in tomato and sauté for 2 minutes. Then, add okra and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until okra changes color. Stir in hot water and bring to a boil. Add salt, sugar and lemon juice.
Close the lid and cook over low heat until the okra gets soft (about 15-20 minutes). Do not over cook, otherwise okra will come apart.
Sprinkle black pepper on top and serve Okra Stew with Olive Oil warm or cool.
