RAJASTHANI BHINDI

I have heard about the Rajasthan bhindi but never got chance to eat it. Last month we went to a Rajasthan restaurant, in Bur Dubai, called as Rajadhani.I would really recommend my all blogger friends and my blog readers that if they get a chance, to visit Dubai, then please make sure that you visit this place. Believe me you will have awesome and very delicious Rajasthan food.


One more thing, I should tell about the restaurant, that you will have feeling of having food, like having at home. The way, they treat you in restaurant, you will never feel, that you have come to a hotel.

In the restaurant, I had Rajasthani Lady Finger (Okra) curry and immediately, I have decided that I will surely make this at home. Then, I asked manager about the recipe of curry, you will not believe that he was so generous that, without hesitation, he took me to chef and told him about what I have requested for. Without any further questions, the chef gave me the recipe and tips about it.

I made this at home recently and I was so happy that it came out perfect. I am sending this to Bhagyashri and Sunita So here is recipe for it:-

RAJASTHANI BHINDI (OKRA)


Preparation time: 45 minutes (Approximately)

Cooking time: 25 minutes (Approximately)

Serving-4 persons

INGREDIENTS

Lady Finger (Okra)-500 grams.

Oil-2 tabs

Onion seeds (Kalonji)-1 tsp

Salt-to taste

Turmeric powder-1 tsp

FOR FILLING

Bengal Gram Flour (Besan)-4-5 tabs

Coriander Powder-2 tabs

Salt-to taste

Chilli Powder-2 tsp (or as required)

Gram Masala powder-1 tsp

Cumin powder-1 tsp

Onion seeds (Kalonji)-2 tsp

Fennel seeds-2 tsp (I did not use because no one like fennel seeds at my home)

Dry Mango Powder-1 tsp

Oil-3-4 tabs

METHOD

• Wash okra and wipe with a clean cloth or kitchen towel.

• Now cut okra very carefully. Cut off the top and end of okra.

• Now make a long slit in the middle of okra without separating it from head to tail.

• Now mix the all ingredients for filling in one bowl.



• Fill this masala inside the okras.

• Now heat oil in a pan.

• Put kalonji in this along with filled okra.

• Add turmeric powder and salt to taste.

• Cook till okras are cooked.

• Serve with rice or roti.

MY TIPS

• If you don’t have dry mango powder then you can add chat masala in this.

• Try to use fresh and small okras for this dish.

• Head and tail for okra can be used for making dosa batter.
