Besanwali Bhindi Sabzi Okra Recipes
Besanwali Bhindi Sabzi is similar to bharwa bhindi in this we just don't stuff okra but rather cook the masala or chickpeas flour mixture along with okra/bhindi.  You can say it's easy version of bharwa bhindi as it's taste something similar and we don't have to do the stuffing part making it easy and quick. When I don't have much time in hand or just want to try something for a change then I make this bhindi sabzi with besan (chickpeas flour).

I made this for one of my Saturday lunch along with dal tamatar or tomato dal just a perfect and comforting lunch simple, flavorful and light.  Though I wanted to make stuffed okra that particular day but when I started to slit okra I realized it's not very tender and difficult to do the stuffing it won't hold up so just end up doing this.

I used little of leftover roasted and crushed peanuts too in the masala it did added good flavor and crunch to the dish but it's just a optional ingredient you can totally skip it the original recipe doesn't call for any peanuts too.  Also lot of people first saute chickpeas flour/besan in oil and then add okra but I do in the below mention method and it's works always best for me.
