    This is my first time too seeing these red okra. My nanny gave th to me. The red ones will turn green when it is blanched. That's why you did not see the Kerabu I prepared got red okra.

    Hehe I myself also have not tasted jantung pisang. I only heard of it . If I have a chance to try it I will let you know how does it taste and smell like.
