Ladies’ finger tomato sauce is a delicious, easy to make and nutritious sauce which you can serve alongside rice, over potatoes or even with pasta! This dish is not slimy like okra (ladies’ finger) dishes can tend to be. This is due to the acidity of the tomatoes added to the dish, which naturally reduce the amount of slime the okra releases. The dish is also very minimally agitated using utensils in order to not promote the release of a lot of slime from the okra.
