Amma:

Tara wanted to have some different "exotic" vegetable. The Indian store close by had a whole fresh supply of Tondekais & Tara pounced on them.

Yummy - tondekai curry roast for dinner last night - thanks to your recipe.

love,

I like thondekai. Though it is considered weed around my parts...people use its leaves to go into their greens masiyal! Something peculiar!

Agree with the aussies .Tondekai used to grow like a jungle in my garden once. But i rather loved the look of the beautifully shaped leaves draped all over my fences. Ever since the report that it is good for diabeti was published, we are having the veggie every alternate day. cooked in the second method.(not becoz. it is healthier, but becoz. it is easier and quicker !)

Jadu - yes its a fav for many!

Jinny - This is not a gherkin, although it looks similar. The taste and texture is also slightly different. Gherkin is more of a tiny cucumber.

I found wikis for both!

Tondekai or Ivy Gourd is called Coccinia indica, whereas Gherkins are called Cucumis sativus!



I think the name for thondakai is gherkin?

lg - ...but I understood what you meant :-)

divya - we've lived in blore-mysore for so long now, that some of our vocab has become Kannada, and most times I dont even realize which language it is :-))) I first heard the name kovakkai from an aunt married into our family from TN! :-))

Hello Roshni - I think Tinda is some roundish veggy. This one is called Kundri in Bengali, and Tindora, TindLa, Tondli etc in the North!

wow! This is called tinda in north india, right? Seems quite yummy... I never knew how to make a curry out of this veggie! But now I do!

We call it kovakkai, and I really really like it. And curry is exactly what I make with them too.

I deleted my earlier comment coz When I read it again I could not understand the first part! LOL
I meant to say steaming is the best way to make healthy palya. I cannot see few of things like post coment, etc may be it is because of color. You can change it in layout/Settings where there is option to change the font colors, size, shape, etc.

2008-11-12T05:11:00.000+05:30

Jayashree - yes, that's my fav too!

appa - that much??!!

Sia - Apparently its a 'major' problem in aussie :-))

Cham - I tried to fix it in the html code. Hope its showing okay now! Thx for letting me know.


Divya - So true! I ran a search on 'buy ivy gourd US' and landed up finding ivy gourd extracts sold in health care stores!!!!

the cost of tondekai went up to Rs.60 per kg after an article on it came in a paper. its continuous intake reducing blood sugar in diabetic patients. appa

2008-11-11T14:27:00.000+05:30

The first method is the way I like it best. Btw, like LG said, it is really hard to see the "Post comment" link.

2008-11-11T14:03:00.000+05:30

lg - I changed the whole templates ..its a different code with the same look and feel, but allows me to keep a static over the main area...

I can see the comments section clearly on my machine!

I am getting tired of the limitations with ready to use templates....need something more flexible!!
