Tindoora/dondakaya fry(2)


  Gherkins fry

This is the simplest of simplest recipes for any vegetable i suppose with not much spices to add quick ,simple and flavourful.



  1. Tindoora/Dondakayalu- 6 cups (sliced)

  2. Onion – 2(medium size)

  3. Red chilli powder – per taste

  4. Salt – per taste

  5. Oil – 3 tsp


  • First slice the tindoora vertically into 2 halves.Then slice each half into vertical slices or even u can cut them as  round circles.

  • Heat oil nicely in a deep kadai.

  • Add the tindoora pieces and mix.

  • Keep a med-high flame and once in few min keep mixing the tindoora pieces 

  • Once the tindoora pieces  are  little soft add onions and fry for another 10 minutes.

  • To this  add salt and chilli powder.

  • This fry is easy and goes well with rice or any indian breads.



  • U can even fry without onions too.

  • I do the same way with potato,parval,raw banana,okra and the list goes on…..
