Okra Potato Curry/ Bhindi Aloo Ki Sabzi

Stir fry or curry, however okra aka bhindi and potatoes works wonder together, one of my recent trial with these both vegetables turned out absolutely yummy. This sabzi goes for simple ingredients with few spice powders, and i went for microwave oven cooking for making this fingerlicking curry. Microwave cooking needs patience but you doesnt need to stay next to your oven as we do if you are cooking in stove top. Once the cooking time gets finished,your dishes will be ready to have, actually i love preparing foods through microwave oven, i know some are using their microwave oven just for reheating but trust me you can make varieties of dishes with this kitchen gadget. I have prepared couple of dishes with my microwave oven and still i cook my basmati rice through it,since ever i have started cooking basmati rice through microwave oven i get prefectly cooked basmati rice. You know i can talk for hours about microwave cooking, actually you can prepare a Royal feast with it.


Today's post is my last post for this week's blogging marathon, you might have already noticed that am cooking under the theme cooking with an alphabet, after K, V today post's name starts with O thus am posting this Okra potato curry. This week's theme also goes for different cooking method, after baking and stove top cooking, my today's post goes for microwave cooking. This curry takes hardly half an hour to get ready,doesnt need constant stirring, actually you doesnt need to keep an eye while cooking this dish through microwave oven. Microwave cooking time varies according to the power of your own, while cooking dishes like this its better to use the full power of your microwave oven.This curry goes to Vegan Thursdays.
