12 okra
4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 small onion, grated
2 teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
thick-cut bacon

Prepare the grill for medium-high indirect grilling. Prepare the stuffing for the okra, by combining the peanut butter, onion, ginger-garlic paste, chili powder, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and salt in a bowl. Make sure to mix thoroughly. Wash and dry the okra, chop off the heads and tail ends and make a slit from the top to the bottom end. Place the stuffing in a piping bag (or Ziploc bag, with a small hole cut on one end). Stuff the peanut butter mixture into the slits of the okra. Wrap each okra with bacon, cut off any excess, and secure with a toothpick. Place the bacon wrapped okra on the grill over indirect heat and grill till the bacon is nice and crisp and the okra has softened up.
