Method

2. In a bowl, add ingredients numbered 3. Mix all the spices together with a spoon.

3. Take one bhindi and stuff it with 1/2 – 3/4 tsp prepared masala. Repeat with the remaining bhindis. Set them aside.

4. Heat 2 – 3 tbsp oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Place the stuffed bhindi in a single layer in the pan. Bring down the heat to medium-low and cook for 1 – 2 minutes. Flip each bhindi carefully and cook again for a few minutes. Keep tossing the bhindi every 1 – 2 minutes until done. It takes about 8 – 12 minutes. Sprinkle chopped cilantro and switch off.
