Stuffed okra | Stuffed ladies finger

Okra/Bhindi/Ladies finger goes well with rice and chapathis. Few years back, a gujarathi friend called us for dinner and served pulkhas with this hot stuffed okras. It taste wonderful when it is hot. With chapathi it would be a dry subzi, combined with dal it is a wholesome meal. I have done this with okra, you could try with brinjal or bitter guard.

  • Okra - 10
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Salt - to taste
  For stuffing:

  • Gram flour/ besan flour - 3 tbsp
  • Onions - 2 tbsp, finely chopped
  • Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Kasturi methi or cilantro - 1 tbsp, chopped
  • Amchur powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
  • Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - to taste


Rinse the okra and dry in a paper towel. Slit the okra lengthwise, without breaking the edge. Combine all the ingredients given under 'for stuffing' in a bowl.
Mix well, it would be crumbly. Stuff his powder in the slitted okra. Heat a wide pan with oil and arrange the okras giving space to turn.
Cover with lid. Let it cook in a low-medium flame. Turn the other side and allow it to turn crispier. 
Serve hot with rotis.

Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

Govinda Lilamrta PDF
