Lady finger, bhindi or okra is a green coloured vegetable that's usually found in warmer climates. It's long, gummy, crisp and sticky on the inside. In India, we often pan-fry the bhindi with a host of masalas like garam masala, amchoor, haldi etc or use it in the quintessential sambhar, but elsewhere it's also used in salads, soups and curries.
