In a small saucepan with a lid, combine Brown Rice (3/4 cup), 1 1/2 cups of water and Salt (as needed). Place on high heat, and bring to a simmer.

Cover, turn heat down to low, and cook until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, 40-45 minutes.

Crush 3 Garlic (3 cloves), peel and push garlic through a press or mince it. Grate or mince Ground Turmeric (1/4 cup) and Fresh Ginger (1 cup); they do not need to be peeled.

Measure out 2 teaspoons each of minced tumeric and ginger. Hold Okra (1 2/3 cups) by the stem like the serrano peppers and cut into 1/4 inch rounds. Slice a thin circle off stem ends off Roma Tomato (3/4 cup) to remove hard green part of core.
