My mother in law, whenever i visit her she often prepares this for me as i am very fond of tindas but i never tried. Yesterday when i went to market my husband saw and told me to buy this. I bought and asked my MIL for its recipe..unfortunately the recipe which she told me was lacking few spices and other ingredients too, though it tastes really good.. but i thought to give my own little twist and believe me i was veryyy happy with the results.

Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
6 tindas (about 300-350 gms)

Preparation

  • Wash all tindas with water and peel its outer skin as it is little tender.

    Make a criss & cross pattern on it. And keep it aside.
  • Mix all the dry spices listed above under For stuffing..
  • Fill this in tindas and still you ll see few amount of filling will left. Do not throw this, later it will be used while seasoning.
  • In a pan heat oil and add cumin seeds, after it splutters stir fry filled tindas in it on low flame and with the lid covered for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked and soft.
