Tindora Salan (ivy Gourd Cooked In Peanut Gravy)
The only dishes I know with tindora is a chutney and a stir fry. Otherwise this vegetable goes into a sambar. And that's when my Telugite neighbour told me they prepared this salan which is a peanut based gravy dish. I have made the brinjal and long bhajji chilly salan before. So I thought of giving tindora a chance. But this time I have modified the recipes given to me and found online and I also fried the tindora in the air fryer. While this did make the curry healthy, it felt quite different from the deep fried version. And I made it a bit tangy so even a small quantity can suffice to eat four rotis.
