For my Siblings ~ Stuffed Ladies finger or Okra with Coconut and Corinader !

There is something about me and Okra or Bhindi as soon as they enter my house...they starts  reminds me my childhood days or I would say my teenage time with my siblings...They remind me my brother and sister..Why? Because they both love bhindi bhaji ! between both of them even 1kg bhindi not enough...and there is me who hear about okra and starts panicking...:) but as a rule we had to eat everything no matter how we feel...When I started cooking and doing grocery , I used to deliberately buy less okra..so I can escape bhindi and also lots of  chopping and stuffing too...personally I believe making bhindi sabji a pain..and when they see less bhindi they both really gets angry with me...I still remind them of these incidents and we have a good laugh about it...So what about now? have I made a good relationship with okra? yes I have and I do bring them more often as I know their benefits and started liking the taste too...even my kids like it, if I make them with the proper masala...and today believe it or not we finished all the sabji in one go..........Well done Jagruti !



This stuffed Bhindi recipe is a typical Basic Gujarati style...we love to eat our sabji with two-three taste together..Spicy, Sweet and Sour.......I make a few versions of bhindi bhaji..and today I'm posting one of them..let's see the recipe



You will need:-
  1. 20-25 Okra  washed and dried
  2. 4-5 tbsp oil
  3. 1/2 tsp Jeera ( cumin seeds)
  4. 1/4 tsp Asafoetida (hing)
You will need :- Stuffing Masala

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/4 cup dry coconut powder
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 3-4 tbsp cumin and coriander seeds powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Dry Mango powder or lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp oil
Mix everything and leave a side...


Method:-
Cut off the top of the Okra and cut into two..slit to open one side and stuff the masala in the slit okra.  Now in a non stick pan add oil and heat it up, add cumin seeds ans hing. when splutter add stuffed okra and very gently mix them.  lower the heat...cook on a very low heat about 15-20 minutes and keep checking, doesn't get burn..Switch of the heat.  Serve hot with garnishing like fresh coriander and coconut.  Have it with Roti, Gujarati daal and Rice..My kids and hubby loves left over masala with rice...Enjoy !
