JFI Entry - Tindora Fry

Vijaya has sent this entry for JFI/ Coconut
In her own words, "one of my friends has a blog and I often visit other food blogs from her site. When I saw the ingredient for this month's JFI was coconut and that non-bloggers could participate, I wanted to send a recipe. This is a simple preparation of gourds that goes well with rice and rasam or sambar".


TINDORA FRY (Ivy gourd stir fry)
(serves 2-3)
15 to 20 tindora (ivy gourds)
2 sprigs curry leaves
1 cup fresh coconut, grated
1 tsp red chilli powder
4 garlic cloves, mashed (optional)
1 tsp garam masala
a pinch of turmeric
salt to taste
For seasoning
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp urad dal
1 tsp chana dal
2 dry red chillies
4 tbsp oil

Wash and slice gourds into rounds. Heat oil in a sauce pan. Add seasoning ingredients.

Stir for a few minutes then add gourds and curry leaves. Saute on moderate heat till the leaves turn crisp. Season with salt, cover and cook.

Add turmeric powder, chilli powder and coconut. Next add crushed garlic cloves and fry until they turn brown.

Finally add garam masala and mix well. Serve hot.
