Bamia (Baked Okra with Lemon)

1 tb Corn oil or chicken fat
1/2 lb Ripe tomatoes, fresh or canned, diced
1/2 ts Salt, or to taste
1 lb Young okra, rinsed & trimmed 1/8-in from stem & tip
1/2 c Water
1 Lemon's juice, or more, to taste


Grease a heatproof glass or other rectangular baking dish with oil or fat. Spread the diced tomato over the bottom and sprinkle with salt.

Lay each okra flat over the tomato in one or more layers. Pour the water over all. Bake in a preheated 350F oven abt 45 minutes, enough to cook okra but not long enough to dissolve it into mush. Do not stir during baking. Remove dish from oven and pour the lemon juice over all.

Serve warm. Serves 6 with other dishes.
