so easy to make bhindi..n how tasty it is. Did ya try stuffed bhindi? Slice up the tummy of the bhindi in stuff with a dry masala mix of salt,mirchi,dhania powder, amchur n haldi, n stir occasionally n gently in a flat pan with a lil oil. yumm n easy. if you wish, grate a few onions, n mix all the aforementioned dry masalas n fry (not stirring too much)
