1. Prepare ginger-garlic paste and chaat masala. For each okra, cut off the very end of the stem and discard. Then make a long slit on one side from the stem down, stopping 3/4 inch from the tip. (Do not cut the okra into 2 pieces both sides should remain attached at the tip.) Transfer to a bowl.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the oil, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt and add to the okra. Toss to mix, then spread evenly on a baking sheet or broiler pan.
3. Preheat the oven to broil or preheat the broiler then cook the okra 4 to 5 inches from the heat source until the tops are brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
4. Turn off the broiler and preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the okra on the lowest rack in the oven and bake until the bottoms of the okra are golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. (With the okra subjected to heat once from the top and once from the bottom, there is no need to stir.) Transfer to a serving dish, sprinkle the cilantro and chaat masala on top, and serve.
