This curry is simple and delicious. It's full of tender potatoes, perfectly cooked okra, and a perfumed blend of Indian spices. It's the perfect hearty meal if you are strapped for time.



  • 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 15-18 okra, tops trimmed and halved if long
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon asafoetida 
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • Salt


  1. Heat a little oil in a large, nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the okra and sauté them, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and slightly browned all over, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the okra onto a plate and set it aside.
    Heat more oil in the same pan.
  4. Add the potatoes and sauté them, stirring occasionally, until they are crisp and brown, about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Add the sautéed okra, turmeric, red chili powder, salt, and asafoetida.
  6. Mix everything well and cook it for about 1 minute.
  7. Add the tomato and 1/2 cup of water. Stir well and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer till the potatoes are cooked through, this will take about another 10 minutes.
