Baked Tindora

Day 1 Week 4 of BM #52 - 
This week, I shall be posting some bookmarks from my fellow BMers. Baking tindora was an idea given by Suma of Veggieplatter when she mentioned about all the veggies that she bakes at home.

We found that there is hardly a difference between the pan fried and the baked versions. My family and friends certified it :).

Ingredients - 

Tindora / Dondakaya 1 lb
Salt and Red Chili Powder as needed
Oil 1 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and discard the ends of the tindora. Slit them vertically and collect them in a mixing bowl.

Sprinkle oil, salt and red chili powder and toss so that it is mixed evenly.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Prepare a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Arrange the tindora on the prepared baking tray in a single layer.

Bake in the center rack for 25-30 minutes tossing them every 10 minutes for even baking.

They turn crisp but keep an eye during the last 8-10 minutes.

Remove and serve them hot as a side to Rice and Dal.

Preparation Time 15 min + Baking Time 30 min
Makes 1 1/2 cups
