Wash your okra.
Remove the stalks, being careful not to slice too far down (see photo above) so that the mucilage is contained within the okra pods.
Gently heat your olive oil in a frying pan and add the sliced onion.
Sauté your onion until it starts to go transparent.
Now add the okra and stir gently until the olive oil has coated the pods.
Add your red capsicum pepper and gently sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Now add the tomatoes and garlic and stir together.
Sprinkle in the sugar, paprika, salt and pepper.
Mix together, cover the pan and leave your Turkish okra in olive oil dish to gently simmer for around 30 minutes.
Remove from the heat, leave to cool and serve at room temperature.
