Tinda Luga Lipta #sikandalouscuisine

I dont know why poor Tinda's got such a bad name - no kid I know has ever liked them , or kaddu  ! While growing up the ultimate insult would be to call someone a kaddu ( we still do ) or a tinda ! Now I cant eat enough of either . Here is a simple good old Punju Tinda Masala , I hope you like it or I will call you a kaddu , choice is yours.
400 Grams Small Tindas - Scrape surface lightly, you may make a X cut half way down or cut into two pieces.
100 Grams Tomatoes. - Puree.
100 Grams Onions - I like to chop half and puree half to get a ' body '
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
1/2 Teaspoon Ginger Paste
1/2 Teaspoon Jeera Seeds.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi Powder.
2-3 Tablespoons Ghee
1 Teaspoon Kasoori Methi - Optional.
Mix the following- Adjusting heat :
1 Teaspoon Red Chili Powder
1 Heaped Teaspoon Dhania Powder.
Chilies to Taste.
1/2 Teaspoon Jeera Powder.
Heat ghee , splutter jeera , when it colors slightly add onions and saute just till they change color , 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 20 minutes on low or till done.At the end add in kasoori methi and you are deliciously done !
