Dondakaya Ulli Karam ( Spicy Tindora Fry)





These days I am learning a lot of nice and new recipes here in Michigan. This is a very easy recipe which I learnt from my friend.

Ingredients

1 lb Tindora (Ivy Gourd)
1 big red onion
4-5 dry red chillies(you can add or reduce accordingly)
2tsp cumin seeds
2-3 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp besan (gram flour)

Procedure

Wash tindora well, pat dry and trim the ends. Vertically slit the tindora from one side to three fourth of its size. Make sure the other end is intact.
Pressure cook tindora for just 3 whistles. Do not add water to the the pot of tindora. Add water only to the pressure cooker.
Meanwhile add onion,cummin and dry red chillies to the food processor and Pulse it.
Remember not to make a paste out of the onions. The ingredients should just blend.
In a pan add oil and saute the tindora till slightly golden and crisp. To this add the onion-red chilli blend, turmeric and salt. Let it cook on medium low heat for about 10-15 minutes till the raw onion smell disappears. Sprinkle gram flour, toss and leave for 5 more minutes. Serve with rice or rotis.
