Besanwali Bhindi - Rajasthani Besan Bhindi Sabji Recipe - राजस्थानी बेसनवाली भिंडी की सब्जी  रेसिपी -  Priya R - Magic of Indian Rasoi

Every morning I struggle, thinking what I should pack ‘different’ for my husband’s lunch time tiffin. Though I normally prefer making everyday roti & sabzi but it gets boring & repetitive week after week. So, I have started tweaking those everyday sabzi & try to make it in different variations. Now, Bhindi/Okra/Lady Fingers are so so common in Indian households and I am sure you make Bhindi ki sabzi atleast once or twice in a week. Here is a quick & different version of Bhindi ki sabzi, inspired by my visit to Rajasthan in 2010 – ‘Rajasthani Besanwali Bhindi’! What I observed is that you will find extensive use of Besan/Chickpea/Gram Flour in their cuisine which is very unique. It was loved by everyone in my home & I did receive quite a lot of compliments too. It is a perfect sabzi to make in the morning when you have thousand of things to do!
