Bhindi Masala

Madhuri.Dixit's picture
Bhindi masala is a spicy and dry indian preparation of lady's fingers that can be served with rice or rotis. Made with slit lady's fingers stuffed with a masala mix of onions, chili powder, turmeric powder, dry mangpo powder and aniseed powder, the bhindi masala is one of my favorite recipe that is quite easily prepared and very savory.
  Lady's finger 250 Gram, slit
  Onions 100 Gram, finely chopped and grated
  Salt To Taste
  Red chili powder 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Coriander powder 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Aniseed powder 1 Teaspoon
  Oil 1 Teaspoon
  Turmeric powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dry mango powder 1 Teaspoon
  Cumin seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Oil 1 Tablespoon

Mix well the finely chopped/ grated onions, salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, dry mango powder and aniseed powder.
Add 1 tsp.oil for binding.
Mix well.
Stuff the prepared masala in the slit Lady's fingers.
Heat oil, in a 1/2 litre shallow dish, on 100% power for 40 seconds.
Add the cumin seeds and microwave on 100% power for 30 seconds.
Add the stuffed Lady's fingers and the left over masala (if any) and microwave, partially covered on 100% power for 4:00 minutes.
