Bhindi Masala

I love Bhindi (Okra). Who doesn't???? I know of very few people who don't like okra.
I make Bhindi Masala with a little twist. I add amchur powder along with all the other masalas spices). This really adds a twist and makes the dish tastier. Here is a recipe for Bhindi Masala.
1 Lb Bhindi(Okra)
Salt to taste
2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
2 Teaspoon Coriander-Cumin Powder
1 Teaspoon Amchur Powder
1 Teaspoon Garam Masala
2 Teaspoon Oil
A pinch asafoetida

Add all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

If the okras are small in size (about 2-3 inches), make a length-wise slit leaving the end portion intact. If the bhindis are longer in size than divide into two and then add lenthwise slits.

Lightly stuff the masala(spice) mixture into the slits made in the bhindis. Heat oil in a pan(thick bottom or non stick preferable), when hot add the asafoetida. Then add the bhindis and stirr. If any spice mixture is remaining add it at this time. Cook in on medium flame stirring occasionally until the bhindis are done (about 20-25 mintues). Serve hot with paratha, naan or roti and with yogurt on side.
