Bharwa Tinde: Required Ingredients

Tinde/Round Gourd: Selection of proper tinde is very important to make a good sabji. Also, it is important that the selected round gourds are of the same size. The same should not be too big or too small. Medium-sized tinde should be selected to make stuffed tinda.

Spices: Spices are needed for the stuffing as well as for the gravy. The most commonly used spices have been used for both purposes. I have used Kashmiri red chili powder. However, if you do not have the same, you can use the regular red chili powder; just reduce its quantity to half of the quantity mentioned.

Onion tomato: The onions and tomatoes form the base of bharwa tinde ki sabji. No ginger or garlic has been used. The gravy has been flavored with the basic spices which complement the taste of stuffed tinde.

Oil: The gravy has been prepared in oil and oil shall work the best for this recipe.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
