Rawa Bharli Bhendi ( Lady fingers stuffed with spicy semolina)

Bhendi or Ladys fingers is a favourite of many including me and I like to make different varieties using this versatile vegetable. But usually I like bhendi in crisp form and so this particular bharli bhendi is my personal favorite.

This is a very simple and interesting recipe where in a mixture of semolina and spices is stuffed in the ladys fingers and then they are arranged in thick flat bottomed pan and cooked till crisp on both sides.

Take care to cook on slow flame and dont turn them again and again as the  stuffing may spill out.

This dish tastes awesome with simple dal rice . This dish is my today's entry for the vegan-thursdays








Ingredients :

1/2 kg .................... Ladys fingers ( Bhendi)
1/2 cup....................Rawa ( Semolina)
2 tsp.......................chilly powder
1/2 tsp...................turmeric powder
1 tsp......................Garam masala
1tsp.......................Dry Mango powder ( Aam choor)
8 to 10.....................garlic cloves (crushed)
1 n 1/2 tsp............salt
1 tsp + 2 tbsp........oil


Method :

Wash and pat dry the Ladys fingers .
Cut the upper end of bhendi and make a slit in it so that you can stuff the rawa.
Take rawa , all the masalas , salt ,1 tsp oil and mix well.
Now stuff this mixture in the Ladys fingers.
Heat oil in a flat bottom pan and add the crushed garlic.
When the garlic becomes golden brown add the ladys fingers and arrange them on the pan.
Cover the lid and cook for 8 to 10 minutes on slow flame.
Now turn them and cook again for 5 to 6 minutes with lid covered.
The ladys fingers should be semi crispy .
Dont turn again and again as this would make the stuffing come out of it.
This dish goes very well with daal rice.
