Dondakaya Verusenaga Pappu Vepudu ~ Ivy Gourd Peanut Stir Fry

Print version of Dondakaya Verusenaga Pappu Vepudu ~ Ivy Gourd Peanut Stir Fry

As long as there’s lots of peanuts, this Ivy gourd stir fry recipe is a winner. A classic vegetarian dish served on special occasions as part of an elaborate Andhra thali. The key to this recipe is deep frying tindora slices before sauteing them in a tempering of spices, curry leaves and onions and finishing off with a good dose of roasted peanuts. Fried dondakaya has a nice crispy crust and a mildly spiced flavor that is irresistible.
