tindora besan nu shak is a simple and easy curry recipe made with tindora, besan, and regular spices. It requires very less ingredients and is made within minutes.

The key to making tasty tindora besan nu shak at home are
  • Firstly, use fresh, juicy, and medium thick tindora, which helps to form a moist and tasty curry
  • Secondly, I made besan batter and coated tindora with it. also, make sure to cook besan and tindora on low flame so besan cooks properly and prevents from burning.
  • Lastly, tindora nu shak tastes great the next day, as it absorbs masala well.
