Masala Stuffed Bhindi

Masala Stuffed Bhindi's - Do u think that it is a tough and long job.. No, its so easy and you can make it in less than 10 minutes, if you have scrapped coconut on hand. I got the recipe from Tarla Dalal's Microwave Cooking Book. Cooking this in Microwave is so easy, and it just takes less oil into it. You can also prepare this in your Pan or Iron Skillet, by just placing the stuffed Bhindi's on the Skillet and leaving 2 tbsp of oil, to the sides of the okra, and letting to get fried for about 3 minutes in slow flame. again flip the bhindi's to the other side and fry them again for 2 minute's.
Masala for Bhindi / Okra
Ingredients:

Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup (half coconut grated)
Bhindi /Okra / Ladies Finger - 20 - 25 no. (roughly 250 gms)
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Corriander Powder - 1 tsp
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - a pinch
Asafoetida /Hing - a pinch
Chopped Corriander Leaves - 2 tbsp
Sesame - 1 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp + 2 tsp

Method:

Wash the Okra's /Bhindi and Dry them on Clean Towel. Make sure Okra's are not wet, before you proceed.

In a Cup, add the finely chopped Corriander Leaves, Grated Coconut, chilli powder, corriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida, little bit of salt and mix well. add 1 tsp of oil to the Masala and Mix well.

Now Slit the Bhindi's Vertically little deep, so that you have enough space to put in the masala inside the Bhindi's. After Slitting the Bhindi's, Take a Big Pinch of the Masala and stuff it inside the Bhindi, all along the vertical slit. Neatly stuff all the Bhindi's.

If you are using a Microwave, Place the stuffed Bhindi's in a Microwave Safe Plate, Do not place Bhindi's one over the other. sprinkle few drops of oil over the Bhindi and Microwave it on High for about 4 minutes 30 seconds.

(or)

Preparing in your Pan or Iron Skillet: Just place the stuffed Bhindi's on the Wide- Skillet and add 2 tbsp of oil, to the sides of the okra, and let it to get fried for about 3 minutes in slow flame. again flip the bhindi's to the other side and fry them again for 2 minute's.

In a small Tadka Skillet, heat a tsp of oil and add sesame seeds and let it pop and add to the stuffed Bhindi's.
