1/2 tsp curry
1/4 tsp salt

Add curry sauce, green peas and edamame to skillet cook until heated trrough and sauce thickens slightly, about 4 min.  Spoon warm bulgar into a bowl top with curry mixture and okra.
 
Notes:
You can add the edamame and peas while still frozen, it just needs a little longer to heat through.
I used quinoa instead of bulgar, it cooks faster and is high in protein.
This dish is vegaterian, but you could add cooked chicken if you like.
This is great served with warm naan or other flat bread.

If you don't have or care for any of the vegetables you can switch them out easly, add carrots and potatoes instead of okra and edamame for example.
