Aloo Bhindi - a beautiful combination of potatoes and okra/bhindi.. it is one of those dishes which you can have often and still not get bored.. Even fussy eaters, particularly kids, will sure love it.  Normally, this is served with rotis or parathas.

Aloo Bhindi, Aloo Bhindi sabzi


  • Ladies Finger - 1/4 kg

  • Onion - 1
  • Tomatoes - 1
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp

How To Prepare Aloo Bhindi:

  • Peel the potato and cut into triangles as in the picture.  Wash the ladies finger, pat dry and cut into 1 inch long pieces.  Chop the onion and tomatoes finely and keep aside.
  • Fry the ladies finger pieces so that they are not sticky and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in the kadai and add mustard seeds.  Once they start spluttering add onions and fry till transparent.
  • Add tomatoes and a little salt and fry till the tomatoes turn mushy.
  • Add potatoes and mix well and keep frying in medium flame till the potatoes turn light brown.
  • Add the fried ladies finger, all the powders and mix well and adjust salt and keep frying in low flame with the lid closed.
  • Keep stirring in between so that the veggies don't stick to the bottom.
  • Check if the potatoes are cooked and remove from fire.
  • Serve aloo bhindi hot with Rotis or Parathas.


  • Can add jeera while tempering instead of mustard seeds.
