Today I am going to share a very easy yet very unique and tasty recipe of Okra-Capsicum Sabji. As its name says it has Okra and Capsicum flavoured with masalas , chickpea flour and roasted nuts


250 gm – Okra/ Bhindi

1 big or 2 medium capsicum

1/4 cup roasted peanuts

4 spoon roasted besan

4 spoon oil

1/4 spoon hing

1/4 spoon jeera

1/2 spoon chilli powder

1 spoon coriander powder

1/4 spoon haldi powder

1/2 spoon amchur powder/ chaat masala

Salt to taste


Wash okra( bhindi) and capsicum properly,Wipe okra and capsicum and cut in four slits

Now in a pan, heat oil, add hing and jeera, when jeera splutters, add okra & capsicum and give a stir

Now add all masalas( except amchur powder) & roasted besan to it. Stir it to mix it properly

Cover with lid so that okra & capsicum gets cooked on low flame

Till then crush the roasted peanuts using mortal pestle/roller, Do not powder it

Okra gets cooked very fast and it is important to retain the green colour of bhindi by not overcooking it

Add peanuts & amchur powder and stir it properly. Put off the flame and keep the lid covered

 After 5 minutes, you can open and check by stirring

Serve it with hot chapatis/ Parathas
