In this aloo bhindi both bhindi (okra) & potatoes (aloo) are to be sauteed or fried in oil. It does not require the raw bhindi and potatoes to be added to directly as this will cause the okra to become soft and mushy. Thus the recipe won’t have a good texture and won’t look good or appetizing on the dinner table.

Serve aloo bhindi along with rotis, parathas or naan accompanied with plain yogurt or plain raita. You can serve aloo bhindi as a side dish also.
