  • 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..
