Dondakaya/Tindora/Ivy Gourd stuffed fry


Dondakaya /Tindora/Ivy Gourd 8 nos

For stuffing:-

Besan/Senagapindi 5-6 tbsp

Red chilly powder 1 tsp

Coriander powder 1 tsp

Salt as per taste

Olive oil 5-6 tbs


  1. Boil Tindora with enough water and little salt for 5-8mins or until soft.
  2. Put through sieve and make a cut lengthwise leaving the edges.
  3. Mix all the ingredients for stuffing.
  4. Stuff the mixture of besan in the tindora and shallow fry on a tawa until golden colour.

The above stuffing can be used to stuff brinjals and small capsicum.My mom does that.Recently I watched a show where the chef stuffed it in ivy gourd.I thought out giving it a try and lol they came out very well.


  1. Wow spicy and yummy. Will try this version....Bookmarked...

  3. I am not a tindora fan but the filling certainly is my fave. I add amchoor too but I am sure two or three from that plate will definitely be a great appetizer!
