About Aloo Bhindi Masala Recipe
A simple and easy north Indian dry curry or sabzi recipe made with potatoes, okra, and dry spices is aloo bhindi. This is not a gourmet recipe; it is made on a daily basis for lunch and dinner. It is typically served with Chapathi, but it also works well as a side dish with a dal rice combination.
Potatoes are known as aloo in South Asia. It was introduced to India by Portuguese sailors in the early 17th century, and British colonists spread its cultivation to North India. The potato is one of the most important commercial crops grown in the country.
Ladies finger or Okra is a long finger-Like green vegetable with a small tip at the tapering end that is widely used in Indian vegetables, raita, and kadhis. Ladies finger is beneficial to the eyes, skin, and RBC production.
The Menu in this simple thali is
Aloo Bhindi Masala
Curd seasoned with salt, sugar and chilli powder
Vegetables of your choice
I made this for dinner couple of days before and served it to my family and my relatives who came to my house.They loved it a lot..Specially both the sabzis hit the spot. My perippa loved the bhindi masala and totally digged into it. Some people hate Okra, but it is my favorite vegetables , this is the one of the vegetable which taste so good when cooked properly.
If you cook right there won't be any sliminess in that. Combining okra and potatoes in a spicy onion tomato sauce makes these veggies so flavourful. These taste great with any roti, but I made it even more special with some ajwain parathas. I hope you love it and let me know what you think..
Ingredients for Aloo Bhindi Masala
Ladyfingers have a very mild flavour by themselves, but they can be made fancier by adding ingredients like lemon, cinnamon, cardamom, or orange peel. Because of their dryness, they are extremely absorbent, which is useful in the preparation of desserts.
Potatoes are high in fibre, which can help you lose weight by keeping you fuller for longer. Fibre can help prevent heart disease by maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Potatoes are also high in antioxidants, which help to prevent disease, as well as vitamins, which help your body function properly.
Cumin Seeds :
Cumin has a warm, earthy flavour and aroma that is slightly sweet and bitter. To achieve the best flavour, the whole seeds must be toasted.
