Chappan Tinda/Kaddu #sikandalouscuisine
I recently discovered this vegetable and am so in love with it's juicy sweet flavors . It;s from the tinda / gourd family and cooked much in the same way . Here is what we did .
0 Grams Small Tindas - Scrape surface lightly, you may make a X cut half way down or cut into two pieces.
Heat ghee , add hing and splutter jeera , when jeera colours slightly add onions and saute just till they get limp - not colored , then add in tomatoes , ginger and garlic paste . Add salt and haldi , splash some water and cook covered 2-3 minute till you see a bit of oil.
Tip in all the masalas , stir , add tindas , gently mix , and cook covered on low or till done. At the end add a bit of ghee and tip in kasoori methi ,mix and take off the fire . How delicious this came out !
