This week's entry is sent to me by Savitha. I loved this entry totally,I have tasted brinjal bajji and I quite liked it but never tasted okra bajji and I am quite tempted to make it soon.
A couple of bajjis and a steaming cup of tea,what else can anyone asks for on a cold winter evening?Try this simple yet different and tasty bajjis which are perfect for these winters.The stuffing inside the bajjis makes it even more tastier.

Eggplant and Okra Bajji(Bonda) with Chilli Garlic Stuffing Recipe:

Looks mouth watering. WhenI was growing up in Bombay, during the monsoons, we would get this pale green Bhindi's and my mom would make pakoras. I miss them so much. I don't come to India during Monsoon's so hardly see those Bhindi's.Thanks Pratibha
