This particular bhindi recipe is made in the month of Shravan, particularly during the Ganeshotsav. But since my kiddo is a huge fan of bhindi, this subji is made almost once a week.   The masala for the stuffing can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. I made some extra. It will keep for a week. This can be used as masala for stuffing baingans also but with a slight variation. Tindli can also be suffed with this masala and they do taste good!!!!



  1. Cut the heads and tails of the bhindi. Slit them in between lengthwise. Roast the groundnuts, remove their chilka and grind them coarsely.
  2. Roast the coconut for 3 to 4 mins on low flame. Now add the kokums, roasted groundnuts, kalonji, jeera powder, dhania powder, pepper powder, sugar and the salt. Grind the masala coarsely. Fill the masala in the slit bhindis.
  3. Heat oil in a non stick pan. Add the mustard seed and let them splutter. Now add the hing.
  4. Place the bhindis one by one in the pan so that they don't overlap. Cover and cook of 5 mins. Now uncover and turn them around. Cover and cook of 2 mins more. Serve garnished with coriander leaves.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
