Tindora Stuffed with Kura karam

Stuffed Vegetable curries are some of my favourite vegetables. These stuffed vegetable curries are easy to make and become a special dish when made during parties/get-together lunches/dinners. More over you can whip up many different varieties each time you make. For me ,one such choice is this tindora(dondakaya) with Kura Karam.
Kura Karam podi is always in stock in my house and this powder has a unique taste ,subtle flavour and aroma that you will plunge into your meal right as soon as the aroma touches your noses.


Tindora 10-12
besan/senagapindi 1 tbsp
salt as required
oil enough to make a crumbly mixture


Wash,clean ,pat dry and slit dondakayalu/tindora in the centre in shape of a "+".Meanwhile in bowl mix together kura karam,besan and salt. Add one or two teaspoons of oil to the mixture and mix to form crumbly texture so that it binds easily inside the vegetable.Stuff all tindoras with the stuffing.Heat a skillet with 1 tbsp oil and add these stuffed tindoras. cover with a plate and fill with water. To do this ,yesterday I kept another big nonstick pan which had handle and filled with water.It was easy to take this when I had to stir the vegetable. Keep stirring veggies till they are tender.

Alternately,you can steam cook tindoras in advance,carefully stuff and then fry. Either way it is good.
Serve hot with rice.
