BHARWAN BHINDI

Generally, bharwan bhindi is done with a stuffing of besan flour with some spices. Some do it with peanut powder too. For a change, I stuffed with Pottukadalai powder(dhalia) and spices. The flavour and taste was great.

INGREDIENTS:

Lady's finger - 1/2 kg.
Oil - 1/2 ladle

To powder ( for the stuffing) :

Pottukadalai(roasted gram) - 3/4 cup
Garam masala - 2 tsp.
Coriander powder - 3 tsp.
Chilli powder - 1 tsp.
Salt - 1 tsp.
Cumin powder - 1 tsp.
Juice of a lime

To garnish:(Optional)

Finely chopped onions - 2 tablespoons
Finely chopped coriander leaves - 2 tablespoons


METHOD:

Select small, finger- long bhindis. Wash well and pat it dry. Cut off the top and end portions (Head and tail ??!!). Slit the bhindis vertically through the centre.

Powder the ingredients given in "To powder"

Add lime juice and little water to the powder and make a soft dough,(THE TEXTURE SHOULD NEITHER BE TOO HARD NOR LIKE A PASTE).

Stuff the bhindis with this dough patiently.

Heat oil in a pan, arrange the stuffed bhindis gently with the stuffed portions on top. Sprinkle very little water and cook covered.

Shallow fry and flip it (sprinkle water when you flip and cook covered) gently on all sides till crispy. Garnish with finely chopped onions and coriander leaves. Serve hot with phulkas or rice. Sending this to Kiran's Veggie/fruit a month & Priya Mitharwal's event 94th Week of BSI - OKRA
