Aloo Bhindi

Aloo and Bhindi are favourite veggies for most of us and when they r cooked together the make a good combination.I had this recipe in a marriage party when I was in India and was too young to know how it is cooked and recently I found it at SailusKitchen and wanted to make it and finally made it on Friday.When ever I feel lazy to cook I love trying new recipes which gives me intrest in cooking n learning a new dish every time then I opend my bookmarked recipes and tried this.Ingridents:
Bhindi:20 no(Trimed on both the edges)
Aloo:2 medium(Peeled n diced)
Tomato:1 big
Onion:1/2(Finely chopped length wise)
Cumin seeds:1 spn
Cumin powder:1 spn
Coriander powder:1 spn
Amuchur powder:Pinch
Turmeric Powder:1/4 spn
Hinge:1/4 spn
Salt:Acc to taste
Red Chilli Powder:Acc to taste
Chopped Cilantro:2 spns
Procedure:
1.Put a pan on flame,add oil and when hot add the cumin seeds and when they splatters add the chopped onions and fry till they turn transculate now add the chopped ginger,hinge,cumin powder,coriander powder,turmeric powder,chilli powder,amchur powder and mix well.Add 2-3 spns of water and fry so that the dry powders will not burn while frying.Fry till oil sperates.
2.Now add the diced potato and stir well so that the aloo is completely covered with spices,add salt and cover with with a lid and cook till potato to 90%.Stir in between.
3.When the potatoes are done add the trimed Bhindi and stir well and cook it for 22-25 mins with out covering with a lid.Toss in a while,by then we can see that Bhindi are 60% done,now add the chopped tomato and cover it with a lid and cook it on medium for 8-9 mins and mix in a while but be carful when u do it,as bhindi may get seprated when we mix hard.
4.Finally add the chopped cilantro and switch off the flame and serve hot with chapathi/Paratha.
I didnt find time making chapathis so I served it with Jeera Rice.But this also tasted gud.We enjoyed each bite of potato and Bhindi.
Thanks Sailu for this wonderful recipe.

How do you make the bhindi not sticky? I tried the recipe and the whole thing turned into one big sticky glob (thanks to the bhindi!)

@Posh:
Don't cover with lid once u add Okra...cook it uncovered for 22-25 mins.If u rinse the Okra pat them dry before cooking it...Hope This Helps
