Cut off the top of the ladies' fingers and slit lengthwise on one side.
Mix the masala ingredients together. Stuff the masala through the slit. Heat the clarified butter and add the ladies' fingers to it. Stir-fry over high heat, till they look glossy.
Lower the heat to medium, add 1 tsp lemon juice and mix well.
Leave uncovered and continue to saute over medium heat. Add the lemon juice in two more stages, till the vegetable is cooked through.
The ladies' fingers should retain some of their green color and their shape.
Serve hot, garnished with mint leaves.
