Tindora Pulusu Recipe – Andhra style stew using ivy gourd, tamarind, onion, tomato and spices. So yum with rice.
Dondakaya Pulusu is a simple Andhra style tangy stew made with ivy gourd or tindora. Pulusu is an Andhra style stew, similar to sambar but without lentils and spice blend. It tastes awesome with hot steamed rice and some papads. We usually make curries or kooralu using tondora such as Gutti Dondakaya Ulli Karam, and Dondakaya Kobbari Karam. This is something different from the tindora recipes that I have posted already.
