I didn't like to eat lady fingers when I was young, I found it sticky after cooked. Since a few years ago, I started to like eating lady fingers, and also it's healthy. I always boil the lady fingers until it's cooked, then pour some soy sauce on top of them, just eat them with a bowl of rice. How about you?

Hi, I like ladyfingers, though it's rather messy to cook because of the stickiness. I usually boil them first; then drain away the water. After that I would stir-fry them with dried prawns and chilli paste.

Hi kaka! I do like it when I was kid and just cooked it with other vegetables or sometimes just steamed and dip it with soy sauce. But now I don't eat it okra often and I don't really know why, but may be because my husband doesn't like it and whenever I cook some, I just eat it by myself. Thanks!

It seems like many people like to just steam or boil it and dip with soy sauce. Well, my husband doesn't like eating ladyfingers too, I just cook it and eat it by myself, as it's really simple to prepare and healthy.

Hi, kaka, i really love eating lady fingers. I just had them yesterday! I stir fried the garlic first and then lady fingers, i will add some water and before serving, i put some soy sauce. It's delicious! I sometimes boil it together with my noddle soup. I also like to eat the lady fingers with sambal belacan. But i only can eat this when i go back home and ask my mom to make for me. My husband doesn't eat spicy food. I think most of the foreigners call it okra.;-) I didn't know it too after i read some discussion about this in Mylot. But i prefer calling it lady fingers, don't you fell it actually looks like lady's finger?;-)

The opposite is true with me when I was a child. I like eating lady finger even when I was young. I also like it boiled and eaten with soy sauce. It is a healthy viand that is easy to prepare. I have read that it contains Vitamin C and minerals. Okra contains calcium and magnesium. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okra

Thanks for the information. I didn't know it's called Okra too. It contains Magnesium and Calcium too, I guess it's good for pregnant ladies. I'm pregnant now, so I guess I should take more.

That's good. You can get minerals naturally through it. It is called okra in the Philippines and I didn't expect too that it is also the common name for other countries.
