I had some fresh tender, plump, dondakayalu (tendli, tindora, kovakkai, ivy gourd) that I had picked up from the rythu bazaar (Farmers Market) this morning. I prepared quite a few varieties with this nutritious vegetable (I’m an ivy gourd fan!) especially stir fries and today, I decided to make a stuffed dry saute with them and came up with this recipe. All you have to do is stuff the tindora and saute them in a tempering base till soft yet with a bit of crunch.
We enjoyed the stir fry with its well balanced flavors. Another variation, give a tangy twist by squeezing some fresh lemon juice towards the end of cooking process.
