1 pound fresh okra (small okra, about the size of your pinky finger, is best for this recipe)
1 1/2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons store-bought or homemade ghee, melted
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Plain yogurt for serving (optional)
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Dump the okra in a large bowl. Drizzle the ghee over the okra and toss well to coat each okra evenly. Combine the spices and salt in a small bowl, sprinkle the spice mixture over the okra, and toss well.
Spread the okra on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 5 minutes. Shake the baking sheet or use a spatula to flip the okra and continue to roast for 5 minutes more. Flip the okra again and, if necessary, roast for 5 minutes more, or until the okra is slightly blistered and the spices are lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
