Like for example...If you make Spinach...just the way you make "Alu (colocassia leaves) chi bhaji"...the maharashtrian way ...with peanuts,radish,tamarind, jaggery, besan flour etc...it will taste just like "Alu chi Bhaji"!!
So...like we make "Bharali Vangi" or 'Stuffed eggplant' and Stuffed Okra/Bhendi....here is "Bharali Tondali" or Stuffed Tindora!!
1/2 cup dry coconut powder
1/2 cup ground peanuts
1tsp Maharashtrian goda masala
1tsp red chili powder (add more for spicier taste)
1/2tsp Tamarind concentrate
1/2tsp sesame seeds
1/2tsp cumin seeds
1/2tsp mustard seeds
1/4tsp turmeric powder
few curry leaves
For garnish- chopped cilantro
1) Wash, drain and Slit the Tindora 3/4 th way lengthwise in a '+' shape.
2) Mix coconut, peanut powder, all the spices,tamarind, jaggery etc
3) Fill the stuffing in the slit Tindoras.
Serve hot with Chapati!
