Bhindi is one versatile veggie loved by all. When cooked in the right manner it tastes awesome.

Method:

Remove the top and the bottoms ends and then make a slit on one side of each Bhindi.

In a bowl add all the above except Bhindi, coriander leaves and lemon juice.

Mix well and keep aside.

Now fill a little of the above mixture into each Bhindi and keep them aside.

Heat a heavy pan preferably iron pan and add a tablespoon of the oil or ghee and spread it with a silicone brush all over the pan.
