What is Tinda
Tinda in English is known as apple gourd. It is around gourd and is a summer vegetable. Rich in vitamin C, riboflavin, Niacin and many other nutrients Tinda is a healthy option for making curry or sabji. But as much as healthy it is, there are almost equal tinda haters in every family as much as tinda lovers are.
What makes this Dahi wale tinde ki sabji special is achari masala along with finely chopped Aam ka achar mango pickle that lends a beautiful earthy flavour to this tinda curry.
The gravy base is made with onion and tomato masala along with dahi. The gravy of tinda vegetable is surprisingly light but looks creamy and is quite flavourful with spice powders.
Why We Love This Tinda sabji in Gravy?
I know there are more tinda haters than tinda lovers. If there are tinda sabji haters in your home too try to cook this recipe. This tinda gravy dish is quite tasty. Let’s say it is tasty enough that I saw a tinda hater in the family to enjoy this curry with his favourite paratha.
The tanginess of mango pickle adds an achari flavour to tinde ki sabzi. If you are using a tender and fresh small size tinda the curry is ready very quickly as tinda cooks really fast. So just change the cooking time by few minutes if the tinda you are using is not that fresh or slightly big sized.
It is a quick cooking curry, you can practically make it in 20 minutes if you are a reasonably OK cook and maximum 30 minutes even if you are a beginner. Any which way it takes 10 minutes of actual time to cook rest is passive time.
