Aloo Bhindi Stir Fry (Potato and Lady Finger )

Aloo Bhindi is a simple side dish recipe yet very delicious too.Whenever i get ladiesfinger from market, i usually end up frying it. This time i thought of making stir fry with it. Also i had leftover boiled baby  potatoes in my fridge. So i thought i will combine with bhindi. It was absolutely delicious.  Enjoyed this side dish with ridgegourd sambar, rasam and curd.
