BM #116 Day 19 -

After the Andhra Varalakshmi Vratham Thali, Bengali Niramish Thali, today we travel to the West and check out some of the delicacies of Gujarat.

Coming to the stuffed Okra, this version has become one of our favorites recently. This is so easy and quick to make that I rely on this recipe without any tweaks.

Until a decade ago, my only favorite dish from Gujarat was Dhokla. Only after exploring Gujarati cuisine, I came to love their other dishes and some of them are showcased here.

In a wok/kadai heat oil and saute the grated garlic.

Gently add all the stuffed bhindi and toss them gently. Let the bhindi fry/cook through.

  2. That's a fantastic thali Harini, you have seriously dish out such a huge feast! I have also cooked so many gujju dishes and some are quite regular too.. this stuffed okra is so sinful with that stuffed masala.

  3. Suma Gandlur Says:
  4. That is one lovely spread and love everything you have put there. Doodhpak is my favorite. The pink raita was the first thing that caught my eye and wondered it was. :) I have tried everything except this bhindi and the stuffing sounds yummy. Will give it a try next time I buy bhindi.

  5. Fantastic spread ! You have cooked a true Gujrati restaurant thali , this is what they serve in restaurants here . Wow ! The colours of the dishes compliment so well and I really can’t say what to pick first . I might not be a huge Gujju food fan , but love this restaurant style food !
    Kudos in such a beauty thali !
