Basara Mei Bhindi Patata (Sindhi Okra Potato Curry )

A simple yet famous Sindhi curry called Basara Mei Bhindi Patata which means Okra and Potato Curry. I have never tried this combo together but now it becomes my favorite. 

The original recipe required frying of potatoes and okra , which I have skipped. Everyone at home liked it and enjoyed with hot chapatis. So let’s start the recipe. Yum
