This quick and easy vegetable is made using round gourds called tinda tossed with dry spices. Tindas are available for only a short period of time in the year during the monsoons months. Tindas that have a smooth skin are much better to eat than the ones that have a rough fibrous surface.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the round gourd, turmeric powder and ¼ cup of water and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a slow flame for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the chilli powder, coriander powder, dried mango powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Serve immediately.
