Try this new and fresh type of bhindi ki subzi. It is stuffed bhindi. The stuffing has coriander and roasted onion as its core ingredient. It has a very intense taste to it.

i liked the taste, but the bhindis were overcooked in the pressure cooker.probably just frying should work.

Healthy. Bhindi Masala is on the spicy side and has extra masala which is spread over the bhindi. Pressure cooking the bhindi makes it healthy. Make sure you wash your bhindis well and see the inside is clean after you cut them. Some times they can be infested. Much better than the fired version.
