I just loved the photo. I loathe Okra, but your picture is tempting me to prepare an Okra dish for the first time. I grew up in a family of Okra lovers, and fought my battle all alone. Well, this one looks promising..

Stuffed bhindi looks delicious Vineela! I have never tried adding the onions with this fry.
Ofcourse I always went for the simplest possible procedure so never even prepared the masala from scratch(being the laziest person I am :-)).
Thanks for sharing a new and yummiliciuos recipe!

Vineela, I love any dish prepared with Okra. My mom prepares stuffed okra, but her recipe is different. I will try your version today :).

Vaishali said...

Hey Vineela,
Thanks for pointing that out. I have changed the date now.

O man pic looks so tempting n i m a okra girl. Unfortunatley the okra we get in US grocery stores is "sooo fat n sticky" that I m almost scared to make it coz it gets more sticky while cooking and i have to add "extra oil " to make it palatable. Send me some if possible :)

I remember one of my colleagues in AP used to bring these stuffed okra for lunch and she never used to get a single okra to eat...It was so tasty that we used to finish it off...thanx for sharing a wonderful recipe...

Hey Vineela,
First time here, Love okra.. never tried stuffing. Picture looks very tempting. Do u think frozen okra is good for stuffing.

Vineela said...

Hi Madhu,
Thanks for visiting .
I used fresh one but for stir fry i just use frozen one by keeping outside for 1/2 hr.I feel ,If Okra is dry and tender ,then it will be good for stuffing .
