This is my favorite vegetable dish with white rice and rotis too. Here is my recipe:

Bhindi Tomato Curry:
Prep time : 10 minutes
Cooking time : 30 minutes
Serves : 3
Cuisine : Andhra

1 lb tender chopped bhindi
3 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp mustards
1 medium finely chopped onion
few curry leaves
4 green chillies (slit them length wise)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 medium size finely chopped tomatoes
salt as per taste
finely chopped coriander leaves for garnish

1. Chop the ladyfingers, onion, green chillies, tomatoes and keep aside.

2. Heat oil in a thick bottom kadai, add cumin seeds and mustards, let them splutter. Add curry leaves, green chillies and chopped bhindi pieces, mix well, fry for 10 minutes(uncovered), stirring between on low heat.

3. Add chopped onions, mix well, fry till transparent. Add turmeric powder and ginger garlic paste, mix, cook for more 3 minutes. Add chopped tomato pieces, mix, cook for more 5 minutes, add salt. Mix, again cook for more 5 minutes and sprinkle the finely chopped coriander leaves and turn off the heat.

4. Serve with white rice or chapatis.

Note: 1. This is a tip to remove the stickyness of bhindi, cook the bhindi (any dish) with out covering lid.

    Its a very common dish of western Odisha.
    Hence naming it as a Andhra cuisine is inappropriate.
