Bharwan Torai Recipe I How To Make Stuffed Tori At Home:
Peel the torai, cut off its end and cut into long pieces. Then slit the pieces to make space for the filling. Now make the masala for the stuffing. Combine dhaniya powder, haldi, saunf, jeera, red chilli powder, garam masala, hing, garlic, ginger, amchoor powder and salt to taste. Also add some water so that the masalas combine well. Stuff this masala in the torai.
Now heat oil in pan, saute onions till brown, add green chillies, haldi, Kashmiri red chilli powder, and the stuffed torai. Mix well. Also add some salt. Pour some water, cover the pan and cool till torai softens. This may take anything between 10 and 15 minutes. Keep stirring so that the sabzi doesn’t stick to the pan.
