Aloo Bhindi Recipe | Punjabi Aloo Bhindi Masala Recipe

This aloo bhindi recipe is very healthy. Because aloo and bhindi both are shallow fried first. Then punjabi onion-tomato masala is made and mixed all together. You can have this subzi on everyday basis.

Notes:

  • When you buy okra keep in mind that they should be long, fresh looking and dark green in color. Don’t buy those who have blemishes, cut or leaked internal juice. Try to buy those who have less seeds in it.
  • How to avoid the sliminess – 1) Okra should be dry before you chop them. 2) keep cleaning the knife as soon as it gets sticky. 3) While cooking okra stir only 2 or 3 times only. If you stir too many times, it gets more slimy.

1) First we will see how to clean and cut the okra. First wash the okra well. If you have time then let it drain and dry out completely. Or you are in rush, then wipe it clean and dry with kitchen or paper towel. It is important to make the okra dry completely to avoid stickiness afterwards.

2) Cut the both ends (head and tail part). Discard them.

3) Start chopping the okra into half inch pieces. After you chop 10-15 okra, you will notice the sticky and gooey stuff on the knife. So wipe the knife clean with paper towel.

4) So every 10-15 okra or whenever the knife gets sticky, you must clean the knife. It helps to avoid more stickiness. You can see dirty paper towel after chopping only half of the bhindi. Also peel the potato and cube them.
