When they’re done and ready to be eaten, I can say this with sheer confidence that grilled okra stuffed with garlic masala paste is no-competition to any other grilled okra recipe (At least, according to me).

But here’s good news, you can fry these stuffed okra too or even brown them in an oxy fryer without using much oil.

I must say, I love experimenting with food by creating something different with all the ingredients I’ve got at hand. And, this is exactly the story behind how I made these perfectly grilled and stuffed lady fingers last night.

So, enjoy this wonderful and a little-too spicy okra recipe… the best thing about it, IT IS VEG.



Few fresh and tender Okras, commonly known as Bindi or Bende or Lady Fingers

Salt and Pepper to taste

3 small Garlic Pods

1 tbsp Red Chilli Powder

2 tbsp Garam Masala Powder

2 medium sized Onions

1 tsp Vinegar

Oil for grilling/frying



Wash the lady fingers well and slit them in the middle keeping the tips intact. Blend the garlic, onions, garam masala powder and chilli powder along with a little vinegar until a fine paste has been obtained. Stuff the okras with the paste.

Apply some oil to an oven tray. Place the stuffed okra on it. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper as per taste.  Brush some oil on them to let them grill better. Place the tray in a pre-heated oven. Set the temperature to 1800C. Let it grill for 15-20 minutes until done.

Serve hot with some nice green salad.
