Many plastic baskets were put on the ground in a greengrocery I found in Khlong Toei Market. They were filled with vegetables. I could see okras, eggplants, radishes, carrots and others. During watching, a man came to the place with a plastic bag. And he started to put many okras into his plastic bag. Because he wanted to buy many okras, he didn't seem to buy ingredients for today's dinner. He might be a cook and come to purchase for a restaurant.
The native locality of okra is the northeast of Africa. Yet it becomes a common vegetable in Japan. And it seemed to be also common in Thailand. I thought the ways of cooking were different between Japan and Thailand. I wondered what kind of cuisines he would cook with many Okras.
