I also add potatoes in bhindi salan, but you can skip them if you want. However potatoes give a good taste in the dish. Another Bhindi recipe where I have used both aloo and bhindi is this recipe of Aloo bhindi which is a sabzi (dry dish). I would suggest to use bhindi which are tender to get the best taste.

Bhindi salan can be served with chapatis or plain paratha or steamed rice.

How to make bhindi ka salan

1. First rinse 150 grams bhindi (okra) very well. Then wipe them dry with a clean kitchen towel or spread them on a plate and let them dry naturally.
