"Bamija (also known as bamia, bamya, baminja, even bavija) is a meat and okra soup/ sauce recipe. Counting as one of the area’s best okra recipes, bamija calls for okra to be cooked in water and lemon juice, then combined with meat tenderized soft by a long and deep simmer. By the way, okra is a delicacy Cleopatra swore by. Bamija isn’t one of the well-known regional okra recipes. Instead, it’s a delicacy usually found on Eid or Ramadan menus. Remainder of the year there seems to exist an okra amnesia."
