Wash the fresh okras and dry them thoroughly not to leave any moisture.Slice into half a centimeter thick pieces.
Heat the oil in a kadai.Add Mustard seeds,Black gram,dry red chilli,Turmeric and curry leaves one by one.Now add the cut Okra and fry.Don't close the lid of the kadai. Keep frying every 2-3 mins until the okra becomes brown and crispy.
Now add Salt,Sugar,Coconut,Rasam powder and mix well.Add Lemon juice and cilantro.
Serve with Rice/Chapati.

P.S. If you are using frozen Okra then you have to bake the frozen okras in the oven at 350F on a cookie sheet for 45 mins to get the moisture out of it.You will have Okras without water in it.Now its ready to be cooked for your curry.Add these Okras to the seasonings and fry them for the curry.
