Kovakkai (Tindora) Fry

I was never a kovakkai fan. In fact that was one of the vegetables on my "I will be excused from eating this vegetable" list (the other was pavakkai or bitter gourd. I was not allowed to have more than two veggies on that list).

To my surprise I started eating this vegetable in the US and in fact, even started liking it. It's true, your taste buds evolve as you grow. And oh, I have now taken pavakkai off my will not eat list too!

I tried this kovakkai fry recipe from Solai's kitchen and am happy to report that the end result is yummy, just like all the comments on that blog said it would be.

 I did not make any changes to the recipe. I made 1/2 kg of kovakkai though and hence doubled everything other than the water used to cook the kovakkai.
