Aloo bhindi masala is a simple yet tasty side dish made with potato and okra/ladies finger.It is very quick and easy to make but the finished curry tastes very rich,flavorful and suitable for rotis/fried rice.Best thing about this curry is you can whip this fast for a weekday lunch or weeknight dinner with out getting toiled in kitchen,yet make an impressive dish that everyone would relish.I have seen this in menu many times in restaurants but mostly they were aloo bhindi fry.Here I have made it is a semi dry gravy perfect to scoop with roti or eat with mild flavored rice/pulao.As far as I have seen potato and okra should be deep fried but I have shallow fried them using less oil without any compromise in taste.This is a very straightforward and adaptable recipe,where you can totally play around with spices and spice level.Potatoes and okra being hit among kids,there is no wonder this would be a favorite among kids and they would thoroughly enjoy this curry.Try this simple curry with your pantry staples and I am sure you will love this :)
