Okra recipes are always my favorite recipes, and I try to prepare a mix and match several different cuisines. Recently I posted the Kurkuri bhindi recipe which is a deep-fried recipe.

The Bharwa bhindi recipe or stuffed bhindi recipe is one such recipe that is stuffed with spices and stir-fried. I have prepared this recipe without any gravy, but this can also be prepared with tomato onion gravy. The stuffed vegetable sabzi is always best when served it is dry.

Stuffed Bhindi Recipe

Even though the stuffed okra fry recipe is a simple curry recipe, but some important tips to make it perfect. Firstly, use or buy a tender and small okra or bhindi, as it tastes great and cooks faster. Remove the large seeds of bhindi before stuffing them into okra. These seeds make bhindi sticky and do not add any value to the taste. Secondly, I have cut the okra at the center into two pieces. alternatively, you can stuff the entire lady finger and then fry. Lastly, do not add or sprinkle water while the bhindis are stir-fried. If you feel, the okra’s sticking to the pan, you may add some oil for greasing. Adding water or moisture may end up releasing the sticky latex from okra’s
