Bhindi Stir fry is one of the easiest dish to prepare to go with chapati / roti. Perfect side dish to go with rice too.Adding peanuts gives a nice taste and crunchiness to the dish.  This recipe goes to the week 4, day 2  of BM 65 under the theme " One Vegetable different ways". Here goes the recipe.....
