2. In a pan, heat oil. Add onion and saute over moderate heat until onion turns golden. Add okra and stir-fry over low heat for 5 minutes. This will sometimes brighten color.
3. In a measuring cup or bowl, dissolve tomato paste in water. Add mixture and allspice to okra pan. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Add 8 to 10 meatballs and simmer for 10 minutes longer. Do not overcook since okra are notoriously mucilaginous. Serve warm with rice and other dishes.
