Stuffed Whole Okra

stuffed okra



Whole fresh okras are hard to come by where I live and in any case, I prefer the frozen whole okra as it is par-cooked and easier to use in my favorite okra recipes.

This Stuffed Okra is very similar in concept to stuffed bitter gourd, or stuffed brussel sprouts or stuffed baby eggplant - simply slit and stuff with favorite masala and pan fry till desired crispness.

Ingredients
frozen whole okra, thawed and patted dry
masala paste as in stuffed baby eggplant or as in stuffed bitter gourd
salt to taste
some oil

Preparation
  1. slit and stuff the okra with the masala
  2. heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in a pan, place the stuffed okra and pan fry over medium heat turning often till well done; I like them a little charred on the outside :)

    Hi Sheela,

    Looks delicious. I never attempted to make it with Frozen okra.

    Not sure what your growing zone is. But okra is very easy to grow where I am (Zone 6b). Just need to throw seeds down after the frost and they yield well. Just thought I would mention since you seem to grow quite a bit.

    Hi Srividya, you are so right - it would be great to get okra from the garden...and it is so wonderful that it grows easily in your zone...unfortunately, the last 2 years we planted okra seeds and they didn't survive - sort of half-heartedly came up, yielded one or two gnarly okras and died, while other plants thrived... maybe i should try to get seeds from a different source next time...

    I've never heard of stuffed okra. I would think the filling would fall out, but from your pic, it doesn't look like it's a problem. This sounds so delicious.

    I love, love, love okra but never had it this will. Will definitely give it a try.
