This Subji is a simple stir fry with a mix of Ladyfinger and Potatoes as the name suggests. This is perfect for those rush hours in the morning or after work evenings when you want something simple that can be made with the least effort. This dish of Bhindi Aloo goes well with Rice and Roti or other flatbread varieties. It is healthy and becomes a good lunch box item for kids.

Notes:

  1. The Bhindi/Ladysfinger can sometimes turn slimy. To avoid this Pre cut the Bhindi and keep in the fridge or put it on a paper to absorb the moisture.
  2. Alternately you can squeeze 1/4 of a lemon if you find that it is turning slimy.
  3. Adding quarter spoon of sugar helps to retain the green colour of the Bhindi.
  4. If after adding all Masala powders if you subji still looks a little moist and not crisp and dry, add 1 tbsp bread crumbs.
