Madhuri.Dixit's picture
  Okra 1 Pound (500 Gram)
  Mango powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Desiccated coconut 3 Tablespoon
  Ground coriander 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Brown sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Crushed dried red chilies 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Coriander 1 Tablespoon, chopped
  Corn oil 4 Tablespoon
  Onion seeds 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon

Wash the okra and dry on absorbent kitchen paper.
Slit each one down the middle, leaving the ends intact and set aside.
In a separate bowl, blend the mango powder, desiccated coconut, ground coriander, brown sugar, crushed red chillies and fresh coriander.
Using a teaspoon, stuff each okra with as much of the spice mixture as possible.
Heat the oil in a frying pan with a lid, and fry the onion seeds.
Lower the heat, lift the okra a few at a time and place them in the oil.
When all the okra are in the frying pan, sprinkle any remaining spice mixture on top and pour the lemon juice over.
Cover the pan and cook over a gentle heat for about 10-15 minutes, checking occasionally.
Serve with puris.
