Bharvaan Bhindi (Stuffed Ladyfinger)

This simple dish tastes great with hot Chapatis (Indian flatbread) or Parathas (pan-fried Indian flatbread).


  • 1 pound lady finger
  • Oil


  • 2 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp raw mango powder
  • ½ tsp ajwain
  • Salt to taste


  • Wash the ladyfinger and pat dry with a clean cloth. Trim off both the ends of each piece.

  • Make a lengthwise slit in each ladyfinger such that it does not completely open up.

  • Mix all the spices for stuffing.
  • Now stuff the slit in each ladyfinger with small amount of stuffing.

  • Lay the stuffed ladyfinger in a plate.
