Fried Okra in yogurt/ Okra raita

I always wonder why in India it's called as Ladies finger. Anyways, I like this veggie,when it is cooked in ground coconut,roasted coriender-cumin seeds, red chilies.It's an south kendra recipe(south of mangalore).I will post this dish soon on Ma recipes.
Here is the simple and quick recipe made out of Okra.
1 lb Okra thinly sliced
1 big Red Onion thinly sliced
1 cup yogurt
1 tsp garam masala
1 1/2 tsp red chili powder
salt to taste
Cilantro for garnishing
Heat a saucepan add 4-5 tsp oil and fry the Okra until soft and light golden brown and let it cool before adding to below mixture.
In a bowl, mix sliced onions, yogurt, garam masala, red chilies and salt. lastly, add fried okra to mixture and garnish with chopped cliantro.
It goes well with any rice items and Parathas.
