Kacharya is a way of preparing crispy veggies, popular along the western coastal regions. A dry subzi with a traditional tempering and a garnish of freshly grated coconut, kacharya usually involves stir-frying the vegetable till it is crisp. Ivy gourd is an ideal choice for such a preparation, as it is juicy but does not get soggy on sautéing. So, you will find that the Tondali Chya Kacharya has an exciting crunch, a mildly tangy flavour and a subtle juiciness as well, all of which make it a wonderful accompaniment for rotis and parathas.
