Rajasthani Bhindi / Okra with Spiced Gramflour Stuffing / LadysFinger Fry- Rajasthan Style– No Onion & No Garlic Recipes


Me and my sisters are very fussy eaters when we were kids, especially when it comes to vegetables..So Amma used to tell us lots of stories of people who become intelligent and strong by eating vegetables, so we will get some interest in those. Ladys finger is one of those, Amma used to tell us that we will get huge brains and we will get 100 mark in mathematics if we eat ladysfinger..And think about me, I was even ready to eat it raw at those time..HA HA..


 

But now things have changed and everyone in my house loves ladysfinger..Amma makes it like a simple poriyal always and I loved it..She often make rasam and vendaikai poriyal when she has no time to cook..This combo takes a place in our menu atleast once a week..But after trying this recipe, I am in total love with it..I loved the unique flavour of so many spices coming from this dish. This taste great when it is mixed with hot rice along with a spoon of ghee drizzled on top..Totally YUM..It is so quick to make too so perfect for any weekday too..This is my DAY 4 recipe for BM which falls in the theme Seven days of Rajasthani Recipes….Hope you like it and let me know what you think..

  44. hi
    very nice recipe.want to try this today.
    can i use peanut powder instead of besan coz besan upsets tummy. and if i use peanuts then are there any changes in the ingredients.

    regards
    durga

  45. @durga kalyanAdd peanut powder and some rice flour. Rice flour will hold the masala

  46. Hi aarthi, I am a avid follower of you blog. Love your reciepes and I have tried many. I liked this one and I tried it today. as mentioned in the above comment, I used peanut powder. But the bhindis were not frying. It was too sticky and in the process of getting them eatable, all the bhindis broke. On the whole it was a disaster. Taste was good but it did not turn out as expected. I want to know how exactly it will cook as the paste is a bit sticky and bhindis were in a lump. Please reply. Where do you think I went wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  47. @SUSMERA VJu have to cook this on a low heat for manu minutes..it will cook slowly from inside and gets crispy on the outside
