Thinly slice onions. Wash, peel the skin and cut potatoes into medium sized pieces.
Heat 1-1 1/2 tbsp of oil and saute lady's finger adding a little salt (uncovered) until they brown slightly. Keep it aside.
In a separate pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil, add cumin seeds, when it sizzles, add sliced onions and green chilli.
