Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Trim the very top of the stem of the okra pods, as they are often brown. Cut into 1-inch diagonal pieces and add to a baking sheet. Toss with the oil. Dry the chickpeas in a paper towel or a kitchen towel and add to the baking sheet.
Combine the garam masala and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over the okra and chickpeas and toss to coat; everything should look evenly dusted. Spread the ingredients in a single layer and roast until the okra is tender when pierced with a knife and the chickpeas are crispy, 25 to 30 minutes. Season with salt. Toss together and serve while warm.
