lets see detailed recipe …
- 500 gm Fresh Tender Okra /Bhindi/Ladies Finger
- 1/2 cup Oil
- 1/2 tsp Asafoetida
- A Pinch of Turmeric Powder
- Some Fresh Coriander, finely chopped for garnish
To make Stuffing:
- 1/2 cup Gram Flour
- 2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
- 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
- 2 tsp Coriander Cumin Powder
- 1/2 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
- 3 tsp Dry coconut , Shredded (optional)
Wash and clean Okra. Remove head and tail. Split into two halves. Keep aside. Always Choose fresh and Tender Okra, so seeds wont be muchLii inside. Still , in case you wanna remove some seeds , just keep ladies finger in a colander and just shake it.. Some of the seeds will fall down for sure. Checkout the video recipe for details.
Here, I have cut into two, one can also stuff Bhindi with this stuffing.
In a Kadai , dry roast Besan , Sesame seeds and fennel seeds on slow flame till flour leaves aroma. It will turn slightly pink color. When Besan starts changing color , switch off the gas. Now add all other spices and mix well. Allow it to cool completely.
In a non stick pan, take oil . Allow it to heat nicely. Add asafoetida and Bhindi. Sprinkle some turmeric powder and cook on slow to medium flame. Little later sprinkle some Salt ( Be care ful as we have added salt in stuffing too ) Mix well.
Allow it to cook completely. Stir occassionally. As its cut into halves, it wont take more time to cook. Once done , add stuffing Masala.
Add one powdered rusk. If you have bread crumbs available , just add 2 tsp . This step is purely optional . This will help to keep Bhindi not to be so sticky…
Mix well. If needed sprinkle 1 tsp water or 1 tsp Oil . Cook for more a minute .
Garnish with coriander. Serve hot with Roti.
Hope you all will love this Spicy and tasty Ladies Finger . Do try and please share your feedback …
Happy Cooking 🙂 🙂
