Gutti Dondakaya

I have been thinking of making this for quite sometime and I was not able to make up my mind as to what filling we would like the best. After consulting my sister and her MIL, I figured out that I would have to take the risk and try out with what we favor, namely peanut and coconut combo :).

So for Day 2, Week 1 BM #18, here is how we enjoyed.

Ingredients - 

Dondakaya/ Tindora about 20
Oil 1 Tbsp
For the Filling - 
Peanuts, roasted 3 Tbsp
Coconut powder 2 Tbsp
Coriander leaves / Cilantro handful
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Ginger 1/2 inch piece
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/8 tsp

Gutti Dondakaya

Method Of Preparation -

Prepare the filling - Grind all the filling ingredients listed to a fine powder and set aside.

Slit the tindora lengthwise twice, perpendicular to each other, leaving one end intact. 

I partially cooked them in the microwave for faster results. Cooking them in boiling water for 3-4 min is fine too.

Drain and carefully stuff the filling into each of the tindora and set aside.

In a heavy bottomed pan, heat oil and arrange the stuffed tindora without overlapping and let them cook for about 10 min. Keep flipping the tindora so they are evenly cooked throughout.

Remove from fire and serve with steamed rice.
