Okra with tomatoes/bhindi tamatar ki sabzi makes a good accompaniment with roti or chapati. It is tasty and easy to prepare.

Okra is called by different names. It is commonly known as bhendi or bhindi. Many are familiar to it as lady’s finger.

Okra is a popular vegetable which is used in various ways. It is used to make stir fry, dal, sambar, bhindi fry and even chutney. I love making stir fry with it and here is another one, Okra with tomatoes / bhindi tamatar ki sabzi.

Okra with tomatoes makes a good accompaniment with chapati or roti. It is ideal to pack in the lunch box too, kids will like this, just make sure you chose the best bhindi to make it.

Okra / bhindi should be soft and dark green in colour. The nip should break easily.
