Aloo Bhindi

I opened my fridge with a plan to make an okra dish. I realized that I did not have enough okra to make a dish for all of us. So switched to this dish... Though it sounds just like a normal dish, it really tasted out of the world. Would highly recommend you trying this. The key is not to add any water. I used to mess up many dishes before by the addition of water where it should not be added. This is definitely one such dish.


Okra/Bhindi/Vendakka 25 cut
Onions 3 sliced
Tomato 3
Potatoes 3 boiled
Curry leaves
Cumin/Jeera 1 tsp
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp (increase for spicy dish)
Coriander Powder 2 tsp
Cumin Powder 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnish

Oil and Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Cut the okra into 2 or 3 pieces depending on the size of the okra. Heat a little oil in a pan and add the okra and saute till it is cooked. It just takes a few minutes. Keep aside.

2. In the mean while slice the onions. In the same pan, add some more oil. Add cumin and curry leaves. When it sizzles, add the onions. Saute till it starts to brown.

3. Cut the tomatoes into big chunks and add to the onions. Add the chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric, garam masala and salt. Mix well and cook till the tomatoes are done. 

4. Cube the boiled potatoes. Add the potatoes and cooked okra and stir gently taking care not to break the potatoes or the okra.

5. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with roti.
