Tindora nu shaak-Ivy gourd (Kem cho series)



Kem cho? means HOW ARE YOU? . 

Gujarati food is mainly vegetarian and  spicy, sweet and sour. In most Gujarati currys and daal sweetness is there.........I made Tindora nu shaak yesterday of course it was tikhu, khatu ane mithu!!!!!!!!!!!

You will need:-

  • 250 gms Tindora
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp green chilli-ginger paste
  • 1 tsp tomato puree
  • handful fresh chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp lemon juice or small piece of Tamarind
  • Small piece of gor(jaaggery)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp dhana-jeeru powdwe(Dry coriander and cumin powder)
  • 1/4 Garam masala powder
  • 1/2 tsp musterd seeds
  • a pinch of hing(Asofoetida)
Method:-

Wash the tindora and cut lengthwise into four pieces.  Heat oil in a small pressure cooker and add musterd seeds, when they spulter add hing.  Add tindora and all the masala, salt ,paste , puree and tamarind.  Mix well and add very little water and cook till 2 whistle.  Let it cool naturally then add jaggery and take out the tamarind piece from the shaak.  Garnish with coriander.

Serve with chappati, rice and gujarati daal.

  1. Jagruti, thanks for taking a look at my tindora masala gravy...do let me know what you think, if you happen to try it.

    In South India, we make a similar dry subzi with the tindora, but without tamarind...shall try your version, for sure!

  2. I like to eat most subzies with gravy so I wish to know if there is other source of gravy besides tomato puree.

    1. There are so many other ingredients like cashews, poppy seeds, coconut milk..you can use them to make gravy, however they are high in fat. please check out my other curries recipe.

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
