Cleome.....?:   I have attached the picture of the Flower, you wanted to see and categorise. It resembles the Cleome a lot, but much smaller.The shrub is about 9 to 10 inches tall and was seen growing under the shade of other bigger trees in dry scrub jungles of Mysore.
This picture, with the Foliage & buds also seen might help pin-pointing the ID.

May be Cleome but not fitting close to any species known to me.
Leaves are simple and not trifoliate here. If some picture with different angle is there it might help.
It looks like Cleome monophylla
I agree with ... id, Cleome monophylla.

Cleome simplicifolia
Photo of Cleome simplicifolia depicted in Foi has petals which are not clawed whereas the petals in the photo that I had sent are clawed.
The photos that I had sent seem to be similar to that of Cleome monophylla as shown in Shrikantji's Further Flowers of Sahyadri. This sp of Cleome is apparently called Spindle pod in Africa
Seems to have been discussed earlier in efloraofindia based on postings from ... and ...
Please help me in arriving at a possible diagnosis.
Yes ... I hope you are right.
In addition to clawed petals, C. monophylla has 6 stamens as against 10-12 with filiform filaments in C. simplicifolia.

Found across foothills of Yelagiri hills. Tamil Nadu.

Cleome monophylla, Cleomaceae   

Thank you very much.
Interestingly in Tamil‎ it is called Ellukku sakkalathi‎ (Ellu: Sesame, sakkalathi: second wife)
Meant to be wild relative or land race of sesamum indicum.
But both belong to different family.
