I never mixed ladies finger and potato until I had such a combination on one of the ready to eat meal pack.If it could taste nice even in a ready to eat curry ,imagine when prepared fresh at home how it would be! And when I made bhindhi Aloo curry at home it tasted awesome and everyone at home liked it.From that time it is one of our regular sidedish for chappathi.
