For the bhindi. An amazingly tasty recipe , okracurry. Just after marriage when my friend told me about this amazing recipe, I did't find it very interesting as the first picture that came to my mind was a slimy liquid okra's picture and I decided in my mind that I am not going to try this slimy vegetable in any case
The boiled potatoes add much-needed body to the gravy and the fried eggs are simply delicious. Bengalis call it Dim Jhol , its Anda Masala to the North Indians, and at my Oriya household, we call it Anda Jhola
