2.       Usually I wash them in the morning and leave them to dry on a cloth for 4 – 5 hrs.


3.       Cut off the tops from the bhindi and slit them in length to create a pocket. Do not cut them through.



4.       Mix together all the other remaining ingredients except the oil, jeera and heeng to create the stuffing.


5.       Generously stuff the stuffing into the pockets created in the bhindi.


6.       Heat oil, add in the jeera and heeng.


7.       Arrange the bhindi , stuffing side down into the pan.


8.       When the side turns brown, turn the bhindi and cook them on all the sides. Keep turning them  in between at regular intervals to cook it evenly.



9.       Remove onto a serving plate when cooked and sprinkle more scraped fresh coconut and coriander leaves on top. Serve along with chapattis.
