Today made Tindora/Todli subzi for dinner with little variation to routine stir-fry method. I used ginger+garlic+green chilies for zest and coated tindora with thick coarse gravy of fresh coconut and cilantro.This method retained light green color of tindora and subzi tasted delicious.

  • 8-10 curry leaves.
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh cilantro - finely chopped.
  • 1 Cup fresh grated coconut.
  • 1 Tb.spoon cooking oil.
