Aloo-bhendi-masala
     I got this recipe from my friend Sangeeta, she was so sweet to mail me a complete ‘North Indian Thali menu. The menu was so simple and I will soon post that. But first I thought of posting this recipe in my blog. I always wanted to try aloo and bhidi combo for long time. And she read my mind!

This recipe was so simple and the taste was awesome! I had it with roti and I am sure it will go well with any plain pulao or steamed rice and a simple dal tadka. In this recipe, you can also get a greenish coloured gravy by increasing the coriander leaves,which tastes great too! So try by yourself and enjoy!

Notes

  • Fry in medium flame with generous oil. So that the bhendi and aloo gets cooked.
  • A reader suggested doing this part in microwave oven,to avoid excess oil. I have to try myself,but felt its a good idea.
  • I was first doubtful how it would taste,but then the bhendi and aloo was really good with the masala,when ate together. Totally enjoyed it! Happy

Garnish with coriander leaves if desired and serve with roti or mild pulavs. Aloo-bhindi-gravy
