  7. Pls tell me jab stuffed bhindi bnate h to pakate time vo jalne lgti h to isse kaise avoid kr sakte

    • agar aap acchi quality ka thick bottomed pan ya kadai ka prayog karenge toh nahin jalega. thoda sa jyaada tel dalkar, bhindi acchi tarah se paka sakte hain. agar chahe toh thoda sa pani chidak kar, pan ya kadai ko dakhkan se band karke pakayein.

  8. Thanks for this bhindi recipe. We will look forward for new recipes in near future.

    • sure would keep posting new recipes and thankyou.
