Trim the lady’s fingers and make a slit on one side without cutting through. Place the turmeric, garam masala, roasted cumin, red chilli and coriander powders, salt, one teaspoon chaat masala and fennel seeds in a small bowl and mix.

Add the gram flour and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the stuffed lady fingers and mix. Lower the heat, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, till the lady’s fingers get cooked and turn crisp.

Step 4

Garnish with the fresh coriander, sprinkle the remaining chaat masala and dried mango powder and serve hot.
