Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Andra, India
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • For Masala we need,
  • 2 tbsp grated coconut( i skipped),
  • 2 dried red chilies,
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds,
  • 2 tbsp peanuts,
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds,
  • 1 tbsp chana dal
  • other ingredients,
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 medium-sized onions chopped
  • 1-inch cinnamon
  • 2 cloves
  • ⅓ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Dry roast 2 tbsp grated coconut( i skipped), 2 dried red chilies, 1 tbsp coriander seeds, 2 tbsp peanuts, 1 tsp sesame seeds, 1 tbsp chana dal, and then powder it or you can grind it with little water.
  2. Wash and dry 350g Tindora, slit + at the top part, just cut ¾ not fully. Then stuff the masala inside each Tindora. Don't throw the leftover masala we need later.
  3. Shallow fry the stuffed tindora, I fried in an air fryer.
  4. Now heat a pan with 1 tbsp oil, add 1-inch cinnamon, 2 cloves, add 2 medium-sized onion chopped saute well. Once the onion turns golden brown add reserved leftover masala, salt & turmeric powder. Add the fried tindora and ⅓ water cover and cook for 5 mins. Once the tindora becomes soft and tender, switch off the stove. Gutti Dondakaya ready
  5. If you want to make it Gravy add ⅓ cup of thick Tamarind extract instead of water and cook tindora. I prefer the semi gravy version because it goes well with rice and even roti. The dry version is great as a side dish to dal and rice.
Notes
while roasting ingredients keep in low flame otherwise it will burn
you can add coconut while roasting the ingredients, and it will give more gravy, also it will give a nice taste.
To make gravy add tamarind extract instead of water
you can air fry the stuffed tindora with a tsp oil and roast it in Kadai
