Bharwa Bhindi (Bharela Bhinda- Stuffed Okra)

by Priyanka posted at 5:46 PM 11 comments

I had been dying to make these since i saw the recipe for this delicious dish on Kajal's blog. It was a hit at our home and suffice to say that we will be making it again. For a detailed version/step-wise description, head over to Kajal's. My addition to this recipe was adding garam masala to the stuffing mixture

Serves 4

500 mg bhindi/okra

For the mixture

7-1/2 tbsp besan/gram flour

2 tsp chili powder

1-1/2 tsp garam masala

4 cloves of garlic- mashed

2 tsp dhana-jeeru/ cumin-coriander powder

6 tbsp lemon juice

1/3 tsp turmeric

salt to taste

2 tsp til/sesame seeds

2 tsp oil

1. Wash the okra- dry and slit them vertically.

2. Mix all the above mentioned ingredients to form a mixture and stuff it into the slit okra.Keep the remaining mixture aside.

3. Heat 3 tbsp oil in a wide skillet. Add mustard seeds to it. When they pop, add the stuffed okra to it, cover and cook on a slow flame.

4. Keep turning them over every 5-10 minutes taking care not to char or overburn them till they turn crispy. Add the remaining mixture, cook for another 10-15 minutes- covered on a slow flame.

5. Serve with rotis.
