Bharva or Stuffed Bhindi

This will be a special dish of mine as I made it on my 30th Birthday :) Turned out amazing and goes well with Puris ! Do try it out once and you will make it more!!

Lets' see the Ingredients:

  • Half bag of Bhindi/Okra/Ladies Finger - Washed, Dry and cut it in slits from between with knife. Just need to put a slit in between i.e. it. 
For Stuffing:
  • 6-8 tbsp - Coriander Powder (Dhaniya powder)
  • 2 tbsp approx - Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp - Amchur Powder
  • 2-3 tbsp - Fennel seeds (Saunf)
  • Salt to the taste 
  • 4 tbsp - Oil (It is approximately, if you think stuffing looks dry while mixing it add more)
  • 4 tbsp - Oil (While cooking Bhindi, we have to be little generous in oil) 
  • 2-3 tbsp - Urad daal 
  • 2 tbsp - Mustard Seeds
  • 1 Chopped green chilli 
  • Grated Ginger
  • Grounded Peanut
  • Extra Masala if left while stuffing. (If it not left, you can add little bit of Coriander Powder and fennel seeds)

Washed, Dry and Cut slits of Bhindis 

Add all the ingredients for making the stuffing. Give it a good mix. 

Filling the stuffing in between of slits. Looks so pretty :) 

Heat Oil. Add mustard seeds, hing, chillies, ginger and urad daal. Let it get saute for few minutes and then add Bhindis. Give it a mix at the interval of 5-7 minutes. Then add Grounded Peanut powder into it and mix it. 

Ready to eat :) :)
