Bharwan Bhindi is actually stuffed lady's fingers .The stuffing can vary. This a delicious recipe where spice powders are stuffed inside ladys finger to get yummy masala bhindi . Enjoy it with roti or dal ...
Wash the bhindi and wipe them dry with a clean kitchen towel. Remove the cap and the bottom part.
Make a slit in the bhindi lengthwise. Take care not to cut it fully .
Take all the dry masalas in a bowl .
Take each bhindi and stuff the dry masala mixture into the slit made in them . Stuff all the bhindi's similarly .
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan. When the oil is hot, add cumin seeds .
Once it splutters add sliced onions. Saute for 2-3 mins .
Next add the stuffed bhindis and mix well. Saute for 2-3 mins .
Add the remaining masala powder if any . Reduce the flame to low and cover and cok the bhindi until they are tender .This may take around 15 mins . Turn them in between 3-4 times to avoid burning .

- Pick small tender bhindis .
- Don't cut the oil much for this recipe. It won't taste that great ..
- I prefer shallow heavy pan or non stick pan for this dish rather than kadai .
