Aloo Bhindi

Aloo bhendi is a “make any day at home” recipe. Okra is one of those nutritious veggies that are also a favorite of many.

Preparation time: 20-25 mins

Serves: 2


Medium sized Potatoes 2
Okra (Ladies fingers/bhindi) 1/4th kg
Refined cooking oil 2tbsp
Cumin seeds (jeera/jeelakarra) 1tsp
Green chillies 2
Red chilli powder 2tsp
Tamarind paste 1tsp
Pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste


Cut the potatoes into small cubes. Cut the okra into half a finger long pieces. Slit the green chillies.

In a pan/kadai (bandli/mookudu), heat oil. Add cumin seeds and green chillies. As they are done, add the cut potatoes and okra together. Add a pinch of turmeric sauté.

Cover and leave to cook till the okra is done. This may take around 10-15 mins on simmer. Please keep checking to ensure the curry isn’t burnt.

Once the okra is done, sauté for 2 mins until they are crisp. Add salt to taste, 2 tsp redchilli powder and a tsp of tamarind paste (khatai) and mix well till the potatoes and okra evenly absorb the spice.

Spicy aloo bhindi is both a rice as well as Indian bread supplement. Serve along with any of the dals for a complete menu.
