Bhindi Bharwan / Stuffed Okra

My first attempt to prepare bharwan bhindi and it came out so well that I became a fan of this dish :) Try this out friends, its really an awesome recipe.


Okra/Bhindi/Vendakai - 500 gm
Oil - 3 tbsp

Ingredients for Stuffing:-

Dry mango powder  -  1 tbsp
Coriander powder - 2 tbsp
Red chili powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Salt  - As required


1.  Wash, wipe dry and trim both the ends of the bhindi (okra).

2.  Slit each bhindi vertically without breaking or cutting into two halves.
3.  Mix all the spice powder in a bowl with salt. mix well.
4.  Fill each bhindi with the spice mixture.

5.  Heat oil in a pan. Keep the stuffed bhindi as shown in the picture and cook on low flame till done. Stir in between and turn it and cook both the sides.
6.  Sprinkle garam masala at the end. (This step is optional.)

Serve hot with chapathi or rice.


1. To make this dish is dry and cryspy, wipe the washed bhindi well and there should be no trace of water left. You can dry them with a kitchen napkin and arrange them on a news paper for half an hour to make sure that all the water is absorbed by the paper.


  1. Deep fry or shallow fry

    1. Shallow fry.. as shown in the picture. Use only 2-3 tbsp oil.
