aloo bhindi, aloo bhindi recipe

in this aloo bhindi sabzi 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 a plain raita. you can serve aloo bhindi as a side dish also.

  6. I love indian food. And I love okra (bhindi) I’m living in the Dominican republic and brought garam masala from the USA. I have every essential ingredient for this recipe except the dry mango powder. There are plenty of mangos here…. but there are no supermarkets here like in the USA. It is fresh open markets with local produce. What would you suggest that I use in place of dry mango powder?

    • skip the dry mango powder. and just add a bit of lime or lemon juice after you are finished cooking. give a stir and then serve. if you can get dried pomegranate seeds, then you can lightly roast them and crush in a mortar-pestle and add.
