Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put coconut in a mixing bowl and toss with coriander, turmeric, cumin, garlic, cayenne, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Slit okra lengthwise and fill with coconut mixture. Spread okra out on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and salt. Roast in oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Tomato and Curry Leaf Sauce Makes 1 pint
Put a sauté pan over medium-high heat and coat with oil. When oil is hot, add the black mustard seeds. Once they start to pop open, lower to medium heat. Add onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add curry leaves and garlic, and sauté for 2 minutes. Finally, add tomatoes and cook down for 10 minutes, until the sauce is thick. Keeps for 2 days sealed in the refrigerator. To serve, spoon tomato sauce on the serving dish and arrange okra on top. Garnish with cilantro.
