Bharwen Bhindi/ Stuffed Okra

I love Lady's Finger in any form. So I keep experimenting with it. And recently I had tried stuffed Ivy Gourd. So I did the same with Lady's Finger. It is my co-sister's recipe. No one can prepare this as tasty as her.

Ingredients:
Lady's Finger : 20-25 (Cut the head and tail; clean and make a vertical cut from top to bottom so that we can stuff the spice powder)
Cumin Seeds : 1/2 tsp
Green Chilli : 2-3
Oil : To temper (1 tsp)
Coriander Leaves : for garnishing

Stuffing for the Lady's Finger:
Gram Flour : 3/4 cup
Chilli Powder : 1 tbsp
Amchur Powder : 1 tsp
Coriander Powder : 1 tsp
Cumin Powder : 1/4 tsp
Turmeric Powder : 1/8th of a tsp
Oil : 1 tbsp
Salt according to Taste

Procedure:
1. Make a crumbly powder of all the ingredients listed under stuffing.
2. Now stuff the cut Ladies Finger with the Spice Powder mixture.
3. In a tawa heat oil add cumin seeds and green chilli.
4. Once they start spluttering add the stuffed Lady's Finger.
5. Cook on low flame for 15 to 20 min.
6. Garnish with coriander leaves.
