Looks awesome..Never combined okra and alu...always feel that because of the okra the curry becomes sticky..but from the looks, it surely doesn't look anywhere like that:)

I always love the combo of aloo n okra. Poppy seeds give extra kick to this fry:)

Priya,

You can add ridge gourd cut into cubes, instead of Okra. It is called 'Jhinge Alu Posto' and its another classic Bengali dish. Try it, I'm sure you'll like it too. Okra Alut Posto has come out very well.

Regards,
Seema
