Stuffed Ladies finger or Okra with Coconut and Coriander

This particular Okra recipe goes so well with round and soft gujarati rotlis, traditional gujarati tuver/toor daal or traditional gujarati kadhi.

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 aside...

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..
