When you think about it, okra is really perfect for stuffing. It's got a nice, strong shell and an open, hollow interior. It holds up well in these dishes to being sliced open, stuffed, then pan-fried.There are lots of Indian dishes that use okra (bhindi) in this way. The fillings can vary, but here are a few we're dying to try:
- Masala Stuffed Okra Boats at Hungry Desi
- Dahiwali Bharwan Bhendi (yogurt-based) at Sailu's Kitchen
- Coconut Stuffed Okra at Life as a Dreger
- Tangy Stuffed Okra at One Life to Eat
