Besan Wali Bhindi is a stuffed Lady's Finger with Besan and spices prepared a little spicy to pair with Dal and Rice. This stuffed Bhindi makes a delicious side dish with Roti or Rice.
I made this Besan Wali Bhindi for my Rajasthani thali a little spicier than expected as I was pairing it with the Dal and wanted some spicy dry side dish. Making this hardly takes time and you just have to cook it on low flame and keep stirring it occasionally. I made this dal along with Rajasthani Masala Tikadia, Paneer Gatta Sabzi.
The stuffing is with regular pantry ingredients, the usual Indian spice powders. If you want it very crispy you can add a bit more oil than mentioned here.
This week I shall be sharing some regional special dishes from India. I have chosen three different states and this is from Rajasthan.
