Bharwan Tinda is a dry subzi in which round gourds (tinda) are stuffed with a masala of tomatoes, garlic, onion and spices, and then sautéed till the vegetable is tender and the flavours are absorbed.
The juiciness of the gourd together with the intense flavour of the stuffing make this dish a delight to bite into.
