Oma's Southern Okra Dish Recipe

2 pounds fresh okra
3 tablespoons oil
1 medium onion, chopped in wedges
2 large cloves garlic, finely minced
2 medium tomatoes cut in wedges
2 potatoes, peeled and cut in wedges
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Wash okra. Cut off stems and tips. Cut remaining okra into 2 or 3 pieces. In a saucepan, heat oil, then fry onion and garlic on low heat. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring gently for 5 minutes. Okra will appear sticky; don't worry this will disappear as it cooks. Cover pan and cook on low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Dish is ready to serve, when the potato is cooked.
