Bharela Bhindi (Stuffed Okra)

I've been out of touch lately. Blame it on school, work, fitness routines, and then some not so pleasant stuff. I don't want to talk about the gore part but all I can say is that it taught me/was a refresher of good lessons. Never compromise your personal ethics even how compelling the influence may be, and just keeping going. So long as you can answer your conscience, you do not need to answer anyone else. Never ignore health. Cherish the people who are your well wishers especially those who make your life a positive one to lead.

Here's a recipe that Mom and I cooked up together. It took a lot of time but did not feel like work because we split the load. Mom, you are such an angel. I love you, Mom!

1. Okra
2. Oil
3. Salt
4. Fennel powder
5. Turmeric powder
6. Cumin powder
7. Coriander powder
8. Red chili powder
9. Mustard seeds
10. Cumin seeds
11. Hing

1. Wash and pat dry the okra
2. Chop off the head and tails.
3. Make a slit on one side.
4. Make a spice mix of ingredients 2-8.
5. Stuff it into the slits.
6. Heat a wok, add oil.
7. When the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, hing and cumin seeds. Let it crackle.
9. Add in the Stuffed okra and cook until al-dente.

Serve warm with Roti bread.
