Raw Stuffed Bhindi is our favorite.
Bharwa Bhindi | Stuffed Bhindi
Bhindi tastes amazing raw! Have you ever tried it? Participants in our Healing With Food Masterclass can’t believe the bhindi we serve is raw. It’s so yummy!
What most people don’t like about Ladies finger or Okra is the slime that oozes out from it. Although it is amazingly medicinal, most people fry vendakkai in oil to make it crispy. Why destroy the nutrition in bhindi when you can make super tasty dishes without frying?
Recipe by Prathima Prashanth, Health Coach & Plant-based Cooking Expert, NutritionScience.in
8 Okra / Ladies Finger / Bhindi / vendakkai, slit
1 tbsp Mildly Roasted Peanuts (not browned)
1/4 tsp Jeera Powder / Cumin powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper Powder
1 tsp Black sesame seeds
1/2 tsp Amchur powder dry mango powder
2 tsp Coriander leaves chopped
15-20 Pudina Leaves / Mint Leaves
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp Miso Paste
Coarsely grin peanuts and sesame seeds.
Mix all the ingredients together to make the masala, except bhindi.
Adjust miso paste and pepper to suit your taste.
Wash and pat dry bhindi / okra.
Chop off the top if you wish. We like to eat it whole! Make a long slit at the centre and stuff it with the masala you just made.
Garnish with some pudina sprigs and serve fresh!
