  • Heat coconut oil in a medium-size pan and as it starts to heat up, add sliced Ivy Gourd / Tindora.
  • Continue to fry for 10 minutes.
  • Then add the dry ingredients one by one except tamarind and jaggery.
  • Cover the lid for 5 minutes and let it cook.
  • Add tamarind paste, Jaggery and stir well. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • As the Ivy Gourd starts to soften, it absorbs the flavors and it is time to take it off the heat.



You can add freshly grated coconuts at the end. It gives an extra nutty flavor to the tindora fry.
