Aloo Bindi Curry/Potato and Okra Curry

Coming to the day 2 of Blogging Marathon #57,sharing a dry curry with potato and okra.Initially I was bit hesitate to try this combo.But after seeing in a cookery show I was so confidence to try.In the original recipe both potato and okra are deep fried.Here I pan fried both veggies in a low flame to minimise the calories.Again the okra and tomato used are home grown and harvested more than 10 lbs of okra and 30 lbs of tomatoes for the whole summer.The okras were so fresh and tender.With no further delay lets move on to the recipe........................................

This sounds like something my family would enjoy. Nice one.

Exactly the way we make it...looks good and delicious...beautiful clicks.

Wow, you harvested lots of vegetables this summer! Nice. I never tried potato, okra & tomato combo. Curry looks delicious and a nice side for both rice & roti.

Give me that bowl, i can have this curry just like snacks, too delicious.

Such a beautifully captured dish..looks amazing!

I also make this the same way you did.Very nice presentation.

That is such a delicious combination -- North Indians make it very often. Home grown okra and tomatoes sounds awesome.

What a lovely combo this is! I am just drooling even looking at your pictures.

Interesting combo of veggies there.

this must be so delicious with your own home grown veggies - I would try this in a second!
