Chop the Onions, tomatoes, ginger and green chillies very finely.
Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan, add mustard and let it pop, then add cumin, green chillies and ginger. saute them for a few seconds and add in the finely chopped onion. once the onions turn translucent, add in the finely chopped tomatoes and saute them well. add salt and turmeric powder and mix well. in medium flame, let the tomatoes get mushy and mix well with the onions.

Then add the red chilli powder, corriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala to the pan and mix well with the onions and tomato mix. once the masala and onions mix well and come together add in the fried aloo and bhindi to the pan and give a mix. add amchur powder or lemon juice and mix well. sprinkle a tsp of water to the pan and scrap the masala's sticking to the bottom of the pan. then remove the sabzi to the serving bowl.

Notes:

 You can steam the potatoes than frying. also microwave the bhindi with a tsp of oil in microwave at very high mode for about 4-5 minutes. this way you can avoid frying the vegetables.
