Ingredients of Bharwan Tinda

  • 500 gm tindas
  • 1/4 cup clarified butter
  • Mix together -
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp mango powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 Tbsp coriander powder

How to Make Bharwan Tinda

  • 1.Wash the round gourd and wipe dry. Snip off both ends, and scrape off thick skin if any.
  • 2.In season the vegetable is so tender that you may not need to scrape at all. Make slits like a plus sign from one end, to almost the other end, taking care not to separate the pieces.
  • 3.Stuff the masala filling into the slits in the gourds, as tightly as you can. Heat the clarified butter in a heavy-based kadahi and add the round gourds into it.
  • 4.Add the leftover masala if any and stir-fry over high heat till they look glossy. Lower heat and cook covered till tender.
  • 5.It takes about an hour during which you should check on it a few times, and sprinkle some water if the vegetables stick to the kadahi.
  • 6.Serve hot, garnished with mint leaves.
