Bhindi - Tamatar Ki Sabzi (Okra - Tomato Curry)

          This is a super quick, easy and an equally delicious curry of Okra & Tomatoes. It takes very little time to dish out and can be enjoyed as a side dish both with rice or chapattis. I just gave a tempering of cumin seeds and asafoetida and finished it off with the addition of coriander leaves for some added flavour.

  • 300 gms. okra, cut into 1" thickness
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. asafoetida
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. coriander-cumin powder
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • handful of coriander leaves, chopped

         Heat oil in a pan and temper with cumin seeds and asafoetida. Saute for a few seconds. Add the okra and saute for 2 minutes.

          Now add all the dry spices, garlic, green chilies and onion. Cover and stir fry on a medium flame by stirring at intervals. Sprinkle some water if needed.

          When the okra turns soft, add the tomato and continue to cook, covered for 2-3 minutes. Now add the coriander leaves (keep some to garnish) and toss well.

          While serving, garnish with the remaining coriander leaves and relish as a side dish with rice or chapattis.
