Bhari Bhindi ( Tangy Stuffed Okra )


Bhari Bhindi ( Tangy Stuffed Okra ) ... This is a delicious side dish, okra stuffed with raw mango & spices and then cooked. Enjoy it with chapati / roti or paratha. It sounds like a lot of effort to stuff each okra , but the end result is totally worth it.


Bhari Bhindi ( Tangy Stuffed Okra )
****************************************

* Prep. Time : 30 minutes
* Cook Time : 25 - 30 minutes
* Serves : 3 - 4

Ingredients :
  • 500 gm. Okra / lady finger ( Bhindi )
  • 1 small ( about 100 - 125 gm. ) raw mango, peeled & chopped
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp. fennel seeds ( saunf ), crushed
  • 1/4 tsp. nigella seeds ( kalonji )
  • 1/4 tsp. carom seeds ( ajwain )

  • 3 tbsp. coriander powder
  • 1 - 1 1/2 tsp. red chilli powder
  • 1 - 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
Method :
  • Wash the okra and pat dry with absorbent paper ( it should be dry to cut or they will become slimy).
  • Slice of tops and and ends and discard. Slit lengthwise on one side ( not all the way through ) so that it can be stuffed, keep aside.
  • Grind / blend raw mango & cumin seeds with little water until you get a smooth paste.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl, add all the remaining ingredients for stuffing; mix well.
  • Gently open the okra at the slit, stuff little stuffing into the slit with a spoon.
  • Repeat this with the rest of the okra.
  • Keep aside the left over masala, if any.
  • Heat oil in a wide pan / wok. Place okra in a single layer.
  • Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally till they starts to turn brown( about 15 minutes ).
  • Add the remaining masala, cook on low heat, stirring occasionally until okra is tender.
  • Serve hot with roti / chapati or paratha.

  24. hi ambreen, okra is simply delicious. in malsia we call it by the name bendi or lady's finger..
    your recipe here is quite different from mine -yours is rich in spices.
    we fry with some onions and anchovies.. or boil and eat with dip as a side dish with rice.
    i will try yours and eat with roti :))))
