Tindora Curry

Mmmmmm.....Tindora...you can call this my second favorite vegetable. My first, of course, being Potato. I usually make a fry, but this time I thought I'll try something different. So, I just put in everything I could find, but let me tell you, it was delicious!



INGREDIENTS

about 50 Tindora -- cut any way you like, I made rounds
1/2 medium Onion -- finely chopped
1 tsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
3 tbsp Dry Ground Coconut
1/2 tsp Turmeric
2 tbsp Garam Masala Powder
2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 1/2 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Oil

TADKA

1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/8 tsp Jeera
1/2 tsp Urid Dal
1/2 tsp Channa Dal

PROCEDURE

In a pan, heat oil and add in the tadka ingredients.
When the mustard seeds splutter, add in onion and ginger-garlic paste.
When the onion softens, add in the tindora pieces and let it cook until they soften.
Now add in turmeric, salt, garam masala and red chilli powder. Mix well.
Mix in the coconut and you are done!

NOTE: I meant to add only 2 tbsp of Garam Masala, but probably about 3 tbsp fell out of the packet. Nevertheless, it still tasted great. So, you can increase or decrease the spices based on your taste.

Neha, I'm surprised you've never heard of it. Maybe this site will help you recognize it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivy_gourd
