Dondakayalu..Tindora.. 250 gms
Onion chopped..1 medium
Jeera ..half tsp
Red mirchi powder..3 tsp
Adjust according to personal spice eating level
Salt to taste.
Method...Wash tindora..dondakayalu well and cut as slices or rings shape.Place pan on stove and pour 2 tbsp oil,heat it in low level.Meanwhile mix mirchi powder,jeera powder and jeera ,as well as salt together..
If tindora are cut in to 4 slices with ends intact, just like we cut for guthhi vankaya,then stuff the mixed mirchi powder in the cut tindora.Then slowly place the stuffed tindora in to the pan with oil,together with onion chop ,and cook well in low flame, keeping the lid.To avoid burning,add half cup of water to the cooking.Cook in low flame and remove after the cooking is done.
If cut into slices or rings no need of stuffing.Place the pieces into direct pan with oil,add mixed mirch powder along with onion chop,mix well..add half cup of water and cook in low flame placing the lid..remove from fire after done..serve with rice..
Tindora.. dondakaya takes a lot of time for cooking,so simultaneously we can cook other items too.
