Typically, when you think of stuffed bhindi, you might imagine a filling of besan and spices; but here is an innovative preparation of bhindi stuffed with a soft and luscious cottage cheese mixture. Amchur powder gives the paneer mixture a tanginess that complements the bhindi well; and traditional spices impart a delicious flavour and tempting aroma to the stuffed bhindi with paneer.
