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.
