hi! nice to see some recipes from Andhra. I love spicy food, being a Tamil. :)

I dont know what Tendli is. what the English name for this veggie.

I would also love some non-veg recipes, if you are a non-vegetarian.

Thanks in Advance.

I want to try this recipe. Can u please clarify which seeds to use ? fennel seeds or thymol seeds ?

You wrote fennels seeds and in telugu you wrote "vamu" which in English is thymol seeds or ajwain in hindi.

You can try a variation, popular in some houses in Machilipatnam in Krishna District.
Fry the dondakaya pieces till they wrinkle, are beginning to over-brown. lower the heat. add salt and a coarsely ground mixture of dry red chillies and cumin (for half a kilo of dondakaya, if you eat spicy stuff, pound coarsely 6-10 red chillies and a level tsp of cumin). Stiry fry for a minute. Remove vessel from heat. Immediately add one table spoon of BESAN. Mix well. eat hot with rice and ghee. it's wonderful
