  3. Grind into a smooth powder along with turmeric powder and salt.
  4. Stuff this spice powder into each Okra/Bhindi as much as possible. Repeat this with rest of the Okra.
  5. In a pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal and once they splutter, add curry leaves.
  6. Place the prepared Okra in the hot pan and gently turn each one after a minute or so.
  7. Sprinkle salt as needed and cook covered for 6-7 mins.
  8. Once the Okra is crispy, remove from heat.
  9. Serve hot with rice or roti.
