Aloo Bhindi (Okra)


  • 20 small okra
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 spoon cumin seeds
  • Masala: 1 spoon dhania powder, 1/2 spoon chilli powder, 1/4 spoon amchur (mango powder)

NOTE: Since okra tends to become slimy, I cooked the potatoes and the okra separately initially and then put it all together.

  • Wash the okra before cutting. Cut the ends off both sides of each okra
  • Cut the potatoes into thin, long pieces (about the same size as the okra)
  • Add oil in two separate pans. Add cumin seeds in each
  • Once the cumin seeds start sputtering add the okra in one pan and the potato in another
  • Salt both veggies
  • When the okra and potatoes are about 3/4 cooked, transfer all of them into the same pan
  • In the now empty pan add a little oil and all the masala powders
  • Now add all the veggies back in and stir it all together
  • Close and cook (stirring occasionally) until it’s all cooked
