Aloo Bhindi Recipe, Aloo Bhindi Fry, Aloo Bhindi Dry Sabzi

Aloo Bhindi Fry

Aloo Bhindi / Aloo Bhindi Fry is a very quick dry subzi that I made to pair it along with phulkas and jeera rice which was a perfect combination for lunch.I have endless love towards North Indian Cuisine especially such easy and quick subzis.I got this recipe from my neighbour and tried it the next day itself and we all loved this simple yet flavourful curry.Most of all I loved the simplicity of the curry with no grinding and with just the basic onion tomato and spice powders it taste just great.

I am glued to Tv watching India vs Aus so without much yada yada lets get on to the post.

Aloo Bhindi Fry

My Notes:

  • You can even deep fry both the veggies or use a nonstick pan and tawa fry t as I did.
  • Spice powders are needed to lift the flavours of the veggies.
  • After you add the veggies give some time for the veggies to absorb the masala so cook covered for few mins.
  • Adding amchur powder gives a nice tanginess to this sabzi.
  • This dry curry goes well with pulaos / rotis.
  • This is not really spicy, so adjust spice level according to your preference.
