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.

This Rajasthani subzi makes an ideal match for Missi Roti and Mooli Moong Dal .

A perfect rajasthani dish! Spicy masaledaar baby pumpkin tastes really good. Never thought tinda could actually taste so good.

From not knowing what Tinda is and having a dislike, i made this vegetable and just love it. It's a dry healthy semi spiced awesome vegetable.
