Stufffed Okra -- Stuffed Bhindi -- Bendakaya Masala Kura

Stuffed Okra
Kid's most favourite vegetable is Bhindi/Bendakaya/Ladies Finger. I normally make only fry with it. When my neighboring aunt gave this stuffed bhindi all my family members liked it very much. So thought of give it a try, it came very well and tasty.  She gave it with jowar roti but I liked it with rice only. 
The number of bhindi we use for this curry depends on the number of people consume it. We can increase or decrease the number. I made it for six people.  We use small and tender bhindi for this curry.
