  • Wash and dry the okra. Cut the top and bottom off. Make a vertical slit on each okra, taking care not to split them in half.
  • Make the stuffing by mixing ground peanuts, red chili powder, ground cumin ground coriander, turmeric, cilantro and salt.
  • Fill the stuffing in the okra slit carefully making sure not to split them in half.
  • Once all the okras are stuffed, add oil in a pan over medium heat. Save any leftover stuffing to the side.
  • Add the stuffed okra to the pan and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes stirring gently a couple of times. If there is any leftover stuffing sprinkle it over the cooked okras and give it a gentle stir cooking for another 2 to 3 minutes. Enjoy hot!
