Stuffed Okra Fry- Bhindi Bhaja Posto-Narkel-Sorshe Diye



Bhindi (Okra) is a nutritious vegetable which can be cooked in many forms with many kind of cereals or lentils. But today, I am going to post a simple yet tasty preparation called Bhindi Posto. This is a very popular recipe in Kolkata and is particularly relished during afternoon lunch. The stuffing with poppy seeds, coconut and mustard paste adds a different taste altogether to the fry which compliments the Bhindi very well. Well here goes, hope all you friends like it.  
                                                                                
Ingredients:
15o gm Okra /Bhindi /Ladies fingers
2 tbsp Poppy seeds
2 tbsp Mustard seeds(yellow)
2 tbsp Coconut, grated
3-4 Green chillies
2 tbsp Gram flour/besan
1/2 tsp Carom seeds/ajwain
Pinch of red chilly powder
Salt to taste
Little water to make the outer batter
Oil for deep frying


Method:
Soak poppy seeds in water for an hour. Drain and then grind the poppy seeds into a fine paste.
Wash bhindi thoroughly, drain and pat dry with a dry cloth. Chop off both the ends  and make a slit lengthwise to fill the stuffing. 


                                                                             
To make the filling add mustard seeds, coconut, green chillies and without adding water grind this till you get a fine paste. Transfer this mixture to a plate and keep aside.
Now stuff this filling into each bhindi and arrange it in a plate.


                                                                              
 Make a batter of besan with little water, carom seeds, red chilli powder and salt to taste. Heat oil in a kadai, dip each stuffed bhindi in the batter and deep fry in oil till they are crisp and golden. Serve with Amer Dal and plain rice.
