How to Make Bhindi Sambhariya-Stuffed Okra

  • Wash bhindi and spread on a cloth napkin in a single layer to remove all the moisture.
  • Trim the edges and make a slit in the centre lengthwise, take care not to break the okra in two pieces.
  • In a big bowl add all the ingredients for stuffing and mix well.
  • Stuff okras with this stuffing and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a broad and heavy bottom pan and add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, asafoetida and curry leaves.
  • When seeds start crackling, add the stuffed okras and the left over stuffing masala.
  • Cook on slow flame without covering the pan. This way you will retain the bright green colour of the okra.
  • If the okras are not tender then cover the pan with a lid.
  • Keep stirring in between so it will get a nice colour from all the sides.
  • When done remove from the pan and serve hot.
  • Serving suggestions-serve with rice and chapatis.
