Dondakkaya (tindora) curry

Here is a quick recipe for dondakkaya curry (tindora). Trupti of 'The spice who loved me' had posted a recipe for Tindora Shaak. It was around the same time I made this curry too. But I had a lot of other recipes to post so kept this one in the backburner. So, finally here it comes.

1 pound dondakkaya quartered
1 medium onion sliced
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp jeera
1 tbsp dry coconut flakes/grated coconut
1 tsp crushed garlic
A pinch of turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
Few curry leaves
Fresh coriander for garnish
Salt to taste
Oil as much as needed

Method1. Pour oil in a pan and season with mustard, jeera and curry leaves.
2. Add the onions and sauté till transparent.
3. Next add the garlic paste and sauté till the raw smell is gone.
4. Add the dondakkaya, turmeric, red chilli powder, salt and coconut flakes and cook till the vegetable becomes soft.
5. Garnish with fresh coriander.

Serve with rice sambar/rasam.

Serving size - 1/2 cup
Number of servings - 4 to 5
