I have been trying out different recipes with Okras since a while now. Of course, that is because my husband loves this vegetable. So, a few days ago he asked me to make stuffed okra. And I went about in search of a perfect recipe. The neighbor came to my rescue and this one is her masterpiece.
Stuffed Okra or Bharwan Bhindi is a dry, shallow fried spice-masala filled okras. The okras are slit and the spice masala is filled in. Once the okra cooks with masala, it gives an amazing flavor. This version is a no onion-no garlic recipe and can hence be had during your fasting days.
Okras can be prepared in different styles – chopped, fried or combined with other vegetables. Some popular South Indian style okra preparations include Stir Fried Okras and Hyderabadi Bhindi. Stuffing and stir frying the okras is a popular North Indian technique of cooking okras.
