South Indies: Tindora-Cashew Curry

As a kid, I never ate much of Tindora, all thanks to the belief that eating Tindora made one's brain less sharper. I was anyways not so good at mathematics, so I never let my mum get this home. Now, that I have finished the studying phase, I get this more often.

Tindora paired with cashews make a real good curry. Anything that has cashews has to taste great, right? This is a specialty of the Mangalore region in Karnataka & We just love Mangalore cuisine.

tindora-cashew 1


You Will Need:

  • 2 cups Tindora - washed & quartered lengthwise
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 3-4 green chillies - finely chopped
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • A handful of curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp grated coconut - fresh (More if you prefer)
  • 2 tsp peanut oil
  • Salt as per taste
Method:
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan, splutter mustard seeds & add curry leaves
  • Add chopped tindora & fry for a couple of minutes
  • To this, add cashewnuts & half a tsp of salt & saute till tindora is completely cooked. Do Not over cook the vegetable as it tendsto get mushy.
  • Check for salt & add grated coconut & mix well
Transfer to a bowl, serve with chapatis/Rice. Enjoi !!!

tindora-cashew

The cashews add a lovely rich taste to this otherwise usual curry. Make this for your guests, they will love it. Do not make, if you are on a Diet :)

Have Fun :)

I've had this at a friend's place and found it really unique. I had no idea about it making one less sharper - i guess we just have to compensate and eat more bhindis :D

What a strange co-incidence as I had been mentioning about this to my husband. We call this 'bibya upkari' in Konkani. Looks pretty good Deepthi.

hi! i love tindora and ofcourse i love cashew, and i am always on a diet!! but i am sure i can go with a few cashews if not a cupful :)

Pari said...

Hi Deesha, I agree even my father believes the same and still does not eat that vegetable.But in my family we all like this vegetable, I make a stir fry and we relish it with rasam and rice.
I will try your version too but may be with a little cashews, already have put on some weight...can't afford more:-)
