Smoked–Cottage Cheese Stuffed Okra

P1060251

Hi Friends!

How are you all doing?

Days here are becoming hot and dull. Kitchen is steaming and working in the kitchen at times is a nightmare with temperature hitting 43C. I did envy Sanjeev Kapoor while watching Khana Khazana when he mentioned that his kitchen is air conditioned and I so desperately want to have an AC in my kitchen, though I must confess my all rooms are air conditioned which I feel is no more a luxury but a necessity,  but to have an AC in the kitchen is still a luxury and hopefully I will have that too sometime….

Workload is gradually becoming less and hopefully in a few days I will be chirping in all the blogs leaving my comments making everyone feel that I’m alive again till then bear with me…

Coming to today’s post, my regular readers would understand my penchant for the smoked flavour and one can read more of my posts on getting this flavour here and here. What I can promise is that you would never regret making these and they will be a BIG hit. I tried to incorporate the smoked flavour in the stuffed Okra and the resultant was a BIG hit in the family. Every one asked what did I do to make it so tasty and my MIL asked me questions too indicating that she loved what she ate.

Honestly speaking the only thing special about the stuffing was the smoked flavour which made it different and unusual. So do try it and get all the praises…

Ingredients

about 35-40 small sized tender okra

3-4 chopped onions

1” piece ginger grated

200gms Cottage Cheese grated

1tbsp coriander pwd.

1tbsp. Kitchen king masala

1tbsp. Chaat Masala

red chilli pwd as per taste

salt as per taste

For Smoking- 2-3 pieces Charcoal

Method

Wash the Okra and wipe it dry. Head it and cut a slit in the centre for the stuffing. Keep them aside.

In a pan heat 2-3tsp oil and sauté the onions. Add the rest of the ingredients one by one except the Okra to make the stuffing.

Take the stuffing in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Put a smaller bowl in the well and keep the hot charcoal in it, put a few drops of oil over it and close the bowl with the lid for 15-20 minutes.

Stuff the Okra with the smoked stuffing. Heat a few tablespoon of oil in a pan and slide the stuffed okra in it and mix properly. Cook till done.

This sounds good....hi fi sort of a dish....

i never though that i could achieve the smoky flavour even at home. Great job done. And having AC in kitchen sounds fancy as it will suck all the oil and eventually may need very frequent cleaning of filters...
