Bengali inspired Bhindi Masala

Hi Readers,

Today, I just modified the regular Aloo bhindi fry to taste a little different. I used famous Bengali masala mustard paste and posto paste(khus khus). Here is the recipe for you.

2 cups ladies finger (bhindi) - 250 gms - chopped
1 medium sized potato - chopped
1 tbsp poppy seeds (khus-khus)
1 tbsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
2 tsp oil
1 1/2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
salt to taste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1/2 tsp chili powder

Wash the ladies finger and pat dry completely on a kitchen towel.Chop them & Keep aside. Wash potato and chop into thin pieces.
Combine the poppy seeds and mustard seeds and grind in a mixer to a fine powder. Keep aside.
Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai, add the ladies finger and cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes or till they become soft, while stirring occasionally.
Add the green chillies, prepared powder, salt and sugar, turmeric powder and chilli powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Serve hot.
