BASARA MEI BHINDI PATATA ( Sindhi Bhindi Aloo ki Sabzi)

This is simple and traditional bhindi aloo sabzi from the Sindhi Cuisine. We serve it with rotis.

Bhindi / okra / lady's finger ...  250 gms
Onion ................ 2  ( chopped finely)
Potatoes ............  2 ( cut into cubes)
Tomato ............. 1 ( cut into cubes)
Garlic ............. 1 tsp crushed
Green chillies ... 1-2
Turmeric powder ... 1/8 tsp
Coriander powder .. 1 tsp
Cumin powder ....... 1 tsp
Red chilli powder ... 1/4 tsp
Salt ................  to taste
Coriander leaves ... To garnish


1. Cut the bhindis into 1 inch size pieces. Sprinkle a little salt. Cut the potatoes into cubes and put them water to which a little salt is added.

2. Fry the bhindis and potato cubes until almost done. Set aside.

3. In a pan heat a little oil and saute the garlic and onion. Simmer until translucent.
4. Now add the green chillies, tomatoes and also the fried bhindi and aloo.
Add the salt carefully as the bhindi and aloo have salt already. Also add the dry spice powders.

5. Mix carefully and simmer for a minute. (or even less depending how well the aloo and bhindis are done.)
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
This goes well with rotis.
