  • While chopping Bhindi make sure they are completely dry.
  • Potato takes more time to get cooked compare to bhindi so make sure to cook potato first on high flame, this will help to burn all the water content from potato and it will get cooked around 40% in this process. While bhindi tends to stick in pan so remember to turn down flame on slow once you add bhindi.

I too was skeptical about this combo until last year as this stubborn and sticky okra don't let anything to mix with it. But believe me potato is so gentleman it goes well with anything and so with okra too. You can even make this combo in gravy too. Try it i m sure u Will love it.

We always make this combo , you can try with onion too. Bhindi is good its sticks to everyone. Perfect dish with roti.

Well goes with roti....
