Methi Tindora

For someone who wasn't much of a Tindora fan, I have been cooking this tiny little gherkin with unfailing regularity. Methi-Tindora is a easy dish, and the addition of Kasoori Methi takes it to another level.

1 packet frozen Tindora (about 400 gms)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 fat clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp Kasoori Methi, soaked in 1/4 cup warm water
1/4 tsp each of turmeric powder and cumin powder
1/2 tsp each of red chilli powder and coriander powder
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds + minced garlic and cook for a minute. Now add the Tindora, and cook uncovered for about 5-7 minutes. Now add all the spices (chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder) and salt. Mix well and cook for another 5 minutes. Drain the Kasoori Methi and add to the Tindora. Mix well and cook for a minute or two. Serve hot with Roti or Rice. Enjoy !!

That's an interesting addition to Tindora. I usually just fry this veggie with the normal spices. Will add methi seeds next time.
