Okra in Gramflour Gravy (Bhindi in Besan Gravy)

I’ve made this thrice in last 1 month with the intention of posting it. First I made and forgot to click the final dish photo, (ya, ya I know my photos really don’t create an impression but a woman gotta keep trying, eh?) then I didn’t had paneer to garnish on top. So finally I made it again making sure that this time I do click!

This is again from my mother’s delicacies like vegetable loaf, aam ka panna, thandai. This is very different from the usual okra veggies & goes very well with party menu as it is neither too dry or too wet. This a surely try out once recipe.
