Rajasthani Bhindi

Rajasthani Bhindi is a stir fry recipe which goes very well with Dal-Chawal(my favorite).when I started cooking this Rajasthani recipes in this Blogging Marothan I realize that most of the recipe's they cook in a healthy way of course they use ghee a lot and one more ingredient in there cuisine is Besan.In almost all recipes I think Besan is one of the Impartent ingredient.In that array This is one recipe From Rahasthan, Rajasthani Bhindi.
