Bhindi Aloo

Aloo Bhindi Recipe: It is simple everyday sabzi which goes very well with dal, roti and rice. This simple home style aloo bhindi masala/ alo bhindi ki sabji is quick and easy to do and loved by everyone. Bhindi/okra is a very common vegetable which is widely available all over the world. I also often make at it at home in many ways. In my blog you can see the recipe of Bhindi do pyaza, bharwa Bhindi/okra, Bhindi ka salan and now this aloo Bhindi. Aloo Bhindi recipe is very easy to do. Here I have not deep fried the okras, just chopped them and cooked them directly with potatoes and spices. To give extra taste I have also added some gram flour at the end that soaks extra water out gives us perfect aloo bhindi fry. Also I have added green chilly, red chilly and garam masala as I like this aloo bhindi ki sabzi little spicy. If you do not want it too spicy then you can skip the chillies.

Shilpi’s Quick Tricks
  • Choose the right Bhindi/okra. Look for bright color and smaller size okra.
  • It is very important to dry them thoroughly with paper towel after washing and before chopping.
  • Cook them covered for some time then also cook them in open for some time.
  • Adding lemon juice or amchur powder also cut the slime.

  • It was good….I made it and it came out amazing…however your video shows cumin seeds whereas it is fenugreek seeds….I could correct it because your mentioned methi seeds and your post also showed methi seeds, but typo error during video. Thums up…lovely recipes.
