Indian-Style Okra

3 tablespoons butter okra on the plant
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound sliced fresh okra
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp minced hot pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
salt to taste

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook until tender. Stir in the okra, and season with cumin, ginger, hot pepper, coriander, and salt. Cook and stir for a few minutes, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and cover the pan.

Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until okra is tender. Turn heat up and add garlic and cook a few more minutes.
