This is my dearest mom-in-law's recipe,very easy and simple to make,with less ingredients and yet delicious,i simply freak on this kind of stuffed okras very much,i love to have these kind of bhindi with dal-chawal or kadhi-roti and bharva bhindi.......yum!mouthwatering ..isnt it ?

1 tbsp red chilli pwd
2 tbsp corriander pwd
1 tsp amchur pwd
1/4 tsp turmeric pwd
2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds + 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
Wash okra thoroughly under cold running water,strain and wipe dry them.Knock out the ends of it and give a slit in centre such a way that the bhindis are not cut apart,still one and just a small pocket kind of thing in their stomach.Mix corriander pwd,red chilli pwd,salt,amchur pwd and ground nut pwd together.Add very little water to these spices so that all are mix well and forms a paste kind.Stuff this little in each bhindi in the slits carefully.Heat oil,splutter cumin and mustard ,add turmeric and all the bhindi pieces.Cover and cook on a low flame for few mins,then remove the lid ,stir and flip the bhindis carefully and cook again for few mins without covering.Switch of the flame when the bhindis are tender enough and dark in colour.Serve hot with rotis/dal and rice.
