Bharwan Bhindi/Stuffed Okra

Bhindi is my first love. I have fond memories of loving the bhindi that my school friend’s , Nupur, mom used to pack in her lunch box. I can never make it her way even if I want. 🙂

Today I got up super early with the husband who had a flight to catch. Bangalore Airport’s distance is such a pain I tell you 🙁

Anyway. Here is my fav concoction for the bharwaan bhindi.
