Bharela tindora sabzi

It is a quick and interesting sabzi made with tindora (tindli or kundru), regular spices, and tasty masala gravy based on peanuts and sesame seeds. It has a little sweet, sour, and medium spicy in terms of taste, just like any Gujarati food.  Making stuffed tindora or bharwa tindli requires some time and effort. But in this recipe, I share the easiest way without stuffing masala into tindora. It is perfect for your everyday lunch and is generally served with roti or paratha. Do try this!

The key to making tasty bharela tindora nu shak at home are
  • Firstly, Cut tindora into two parts and make a slit on it, so it will easily coat with masala and absorb flavor easily.
  • In this sabzi, I coat tindora with regular spices and masala, then fry tindora on medium flame, or you can also steam it for sabzi.
  • Crush peanut and sesame to give a nutty taste to the sabzi. Also, I made masala a little spicy but if you do not like the curry to be spicy, and then reduce the amount of chili powder.
  • Lastly, bharela tindora or bharwa tindli tastes great the next day, as it absorbs masala well.
