Tips to buy lady's finger for stuffed ladies finger recipe

Select ladies finger which are small in size (size of your little finger) and are tender.

Break the tip and see, if it breaks, then it is tender.


Wash ladies finger and wipe it dry with a clean kitchen towel. This is an important step as the ladies finger will become sticky, if you omit this step.

Cut off the tip and the crown. Make a long slit and keep it aside.

In a mixing bowl, add chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder or kitchen king masala, amchur powder and salt needed. Mix well and stuff the lady's finger with this masala. See the picture below-they all got ready to be fried.

Heat oil is a pan/kadai, add jeera seeds, when it splutters, add onions and fry until onions turn golden brown.

Then add tomatoes and cook until tomatoes become mushy. Add salt (remember we have already added salt to the stuffing).

Then add all the stuffed bhindi/okra and cook uncovered for 5-10 minutes on low flame stirring now and then. Then cook covered until tender. Serve with chapati or rice.
