Bhindi also referred to as Okra is my family’s favorite vegetable – whether be kurkuri bhindi or baked bhindi, it’s their all time favorite. They can relish bhindi at any hour, just roll it in warm rotis and its their most preferred meal. Undeniably tasty and delicious recipe of bhindi stuffed with gram flour and spices and sauteed until tender.
Nothing complicated, simple recipe of bhindi cut lengthwise and then stuffed with roasted besan and spices. Later sauteed till tender and served hot topped with caramelized onions. I prefer a little crunch with bhindi so I add onions, but as per one’s taste onions can be omitted from the recipe. Very adaptive recipe add or subtract spices as per your taste.
The total cook time for this recipe is just 15-20 minutes but most of the time goes in cutting and stuffing the bhindi. But its worth the effort! Compared to all the hard work that goes in cutting and stuffing, it finishes up pretty fast – honestly I could not stop eating this until it was all gone!
Roasted besan/chickpea flour adds an earthy and nutty aroma to the spice mix. Toast besan on a low flame as it may get burn. Amchur powder can be substituted with chaat masala powder. Garam masala powder would be a great addition too, to spice up the flavor and gives this dish an extra boost of spiciness.
