Okra and Potatao Fry | Aloo Bhendi Bhaja | Aloo Bhindi ki Sabji | आलू भिंडी की सब्जी

Do you want to cook okra without any sliminess? Follow the steps to get those perfectly cooked okra. Okra tastes great when cooking medium is mustard oil. Even tastes better when cooked with potatoes. I have used the famous Panch Photan from Odisha instead of just mustard and cumin seeds.

What You Need:

1 Okra/Bhindi cut in 1 cm thick size 500 grams
2 Potato cut in small size 2 big
3 Mustard Oil 2 tbsp
4 Dry Red Chili 1
5 Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp
6 Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
7 Fennel Seeds 1/2 tsp
8 Onion Seeds 1/2 tsp
9 Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
10 Red Chili Powder 1/2 tsp
11 Coriander Powder 1/2 tsp
12 Salt To Taste

Steps To Make:

Heat oil in a deep pan on high flame.
Once it reaches smoking point, lower the flame.
Add all the seeds and dry red chilli.
Add okra and potato. Mix with a big spoon.
Add all powdered spices,mix, turns back to high flame, and cover with lid.
Cook for 5 minutes.
Open lid, reduce flame, add salt and mix well.
Continue cooking in low flame till your okra is well cooked.
Okra cooked in this way will not leave any sliminess behind.
