Wash the ladyfingers and pat them dry. Trim, slit and deep-fry them. Drain onto an absorbent paper. For stuffing mix the chopped coriander leaves, green chilli paste, scraped coconut, salt, lemon juice, turmeric and coriander powders. Stuff this mixture into the bhindi.
Heat two tablespoons of oil, add cumin seeds and sauté till it crackles. Add asafoetida and the stuffed bhindis. Cook for two to three minutes on a slow heat and serve hot.
