ALOO BHINDI BHOONJIYA ( Bende Kaayi Batate Enne Huri, Stir Fried Potato & Okra)

Many give me surprised looks when I say Aloo Bhindi Bhoonjiya. Aloo & Bhindi together!!!!!! It's Slimy!!! How come with potato????

But believe me it is simply yum! Goes well for a simple & light dinner, with chapatis or rotis.


Potato - 1 medium, cut into small pieces
Okra - 1/2 kg
Onion - 1 medium, finely sliced
Dry Red Chilly - 2, broken
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Red Chilly Powder - 1/2 to 1 tsp, depends
Salt to Taste
Mustard Oil - 1 to 2 tbsp


Heat oil in a kadai (wok) on high flame. Once the oil is smoking hot, add broken red chilly & then add sliced onions. Fry till onions are translucent. Now add potatoes & okra & stir fry. Continue to stir fry till the sliminess of the okra disappears.
