Sounds like a good alternative from fried okra. I made this on 16 July 2018 and is perfect as written, with my wife doing the final taste test. She simple added a pinch of chicken stock powder, the in was perfect, and I wrote that step in as well. This is a keeper.

Instructions
  1. Garlic and okra prepped, I took the photo early before I had the onion prepped.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan, when hot, add the garlic and stir fry until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the okra and onion and season with salt and pepper as desired. Cook stirring often until the okra is tender and bright green, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes, oyster sauce, and mushroom sauce and cook until tender and nearly bursting, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in a pinch of chicken stock powder and taste, adjust with oyster or mushroom sauce.
  5. Serve as a side dish with any meal.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variants: 1. Add some sliced fresh mushrooms. 2. Season with additional spices such as ground cumin or garam masala (1/4 teaspoon or so). 3. Add chopped bacon. 4. Add a slice bell pepper.

A good sounding southern US side dish, that is very good. Not sure how okra ended up in Thailand, or even how it is used in Thai cooking. I have modified this with my findings. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Beat the egg in a bowl then add the sliced okra, mix and allow the okra to sit in the beaten egg for 10 minutes, stir occasionally.
  2. Place the cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a zip lock bag, seal and shake to mix. Add the okra, seal, and shake to coat, does not take long, okra is pretty slimy on its own. (Original recipe called for 1 cup of cornmeal, after making this, 1/2 cup would be plenty.)
  3. Heat the lard (or oil) in a large non stick pan on medium high heat. Important to get the lard very hot. Using tongs, remove the okra from the bag and place in the hot lard.
  4. Gently stir and when nice and golden brown, remove using a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Some of the cornmeal will fall from the okra, no worries, that is expected.
  5. Serve as a side with your preferred main dish.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Instructions
  1. Soak the beans overnight, next day, rinse and add to a large pot and and water to cover by 1-2 inches, simmer until soft.
  2. Boil (or saute in a bit of olive oil) the chicken, on low heat in a separate pan until cooked through, do not over cook. Add to the cooked beans.
  3. Add the okra, peppercorns, tomatoes, and rice to the beans, add water as needed (or whey if you have it) and simmer for 20 minutes or so. Add the broccoli and simmer for another 10 minutes until broccoli is cooked through and soft. Add seasoning to taste and simmer until you are hungry.
  4. A salad or good thick bread with real butter would be great for a side dish.
Recipe Notes

Chicken would run 55 Baht at the most for 1/2 kilo, beans would be 25 Baht or less for 1/2 a bag. Everything else is low cost, this meal would be 80 Baht for chicken and beans, for 4 servings, this would be about 60 cents per meal per serving.
