This quick and easy vegetable is made using round gourds or tinda tossed with dry spices. Tindas are available for only a short period of time in the year during the monsoons months. They resemble green tomatoes and are firm. Tindas that have a smooth skin are much better to eat than the ones that have a rough fibrous surface.

From not knowing what Tinda is and having a dislike, i made this vegetable and just love it. It's a dry healthy semi spiced awesome vegetable.
