               This stuffed okra/ Bharwa bhindi exists in different names. It consists of hollowed or halved okra(Bhindi), filled with any of a variety of fillings, often including spices, coconut, peanuts, and flour. Everyone has their own way to prepare this stuffed okra. They are usually assembled by filling the cavities of the okra and then cooking. Bhindi or okra is mild in taste and thus is a good choice for stuffing and giving it a spicy twist. If you prefer you can make this dish using dry roasted chickpeas flour instead of peanuts and coconut which lends it a characteristic taste. Okra is low in saturated fat and very low in cholesterol and sodium. Additionally, it is a good source of protein, iron, phosphorus, zinc and copper, dietary fibers, vitamins & other minerals.
