Bhindi Sambhariya.

One of my favorite vegetarian recipe is bhindi sambhariya,tender bhindis stuffed with a mixture made with grated coconut and corriander leaves is a delicacy from Gujarati cuisine.I am a huge fan of Gujarati thali restaurants and I have a fond memory of having this dish there often…

With its traditional taste this Gujarati delicacy can be served at any occasion and with any meal.

So here goes the yummy recipe…


1/4 kg tender Bhindi (Okra).

3 tbsp Oil.

1/4 tsp Asafoetida.

For stuffing:

6 tbsp Coriander Leaves chopped finely.

6 tbsp freshly grated Coconut.

1 tbsp crushed Ginger Green Chilli.

1/2 tbsp Dhana Jeera Powder.

1/2 tspn Garam Masala Powder.

1 tbsp Sesame Seeds.

1tbsp Sugar.

1 tbsp Oil.

Salt to taste.


Wash and pat dry bhindi. Cut bhindi into 2,Make a slit length wise in each bhindi.

Mix all the ingredients meant for stuffing in a bowl. Keep aside.

Stuff equal amount of stuffing in each bhendi, stuff all the bhindis and keep aside

Heat oil in a pan, once hot, add asafoetida and saute for few seconds. Add the stuffed bhindi and spread them around the vessel in a single layer.

Add any left over stuffing and cook on low medium flame with lid. Every few minutes turn the bhindi to allow even cooking on all sides.Cook on slow flame for 10 minutes or till the bhendi us cooked .

Remove in a serving dish and Serve with roti or dal rice.
