Grilled garlic and green lady finger

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Okra, bhindi, lady finger or bendekai, is not everyone's favorite. But there are ways to make those people love this beautiful  vegetable. This grilled okra is one of those. Avery simple recipe but tastes yummy.

I have ON-OFF passion for this vegetable. There are months where I do not bring it home for others also and there are months where I bring every time and try new recipes with these. And now a days, I bring it often because its my daughter's favorite vegetable. But she likes it only if its cut into small size. So when I prepared these I only had to finish it, And she warned me to make it again but with small sized bhindi.
The size depends on your choice : I love to have it like this only.
Lady finger - 500 gm
Oil - 4 tsp
Lime juice - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Gram flour - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 1 tsp

Make a fine paste of :
Green chillies - 8 to 10
Garlic - 15 flakes
Fresh Coriander - handful

Wash, pat dry and trim the ends. Slit from the center keeping the ends intact.
Mix the fine paste, slat, gram flour, lime juice and sugar in a bowl.
Stuff the okra with this paste.
Brush the drip tray with 2 tsp of oil.
Arrange the okras on a tray. 
Brush with remaining oil.
Grill on 240 degree C for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve hot with chapati or serve it as a starter.
If you do not have oven,
You can directly shallow fry on tawa till they get crispy.

Thanks Priya, Veena and Jagruti.
@ Jagruti,
yes it was really very tasty and I missed my green chicken tikka as it tastes almost the same. I think I should try it with fine semolina and may be it tastes like fried fish :-)
