Bharwa Tinda || Stuffed Tinda Masala || Stuffed Round Guard

A new addition to summer bites ..stuffed tinda in tomato onion gravy. Though summer vegetables are really liked by me and my husband I can see dim smiles on my daughters face. I am sure …..maybe ….most of you are facing the same problem as me during summers. This inspired me to start the SUMMER BITES series. This is all about an experience of a mom from her kitchen. 

Today when I went for Sunday shopping it was really a mind-boggling experience as I was searching for GOOD VEGETABLES …it was my daughter’s strict instructions ” mom plz we need some good vege’s ” and I know what they meant by this statement …but being a mother how can I neglect fresh seasonal vegetables so my motherhood wins over……so no pampering and …..This prompted me to try something different and hopefully tasty with these not so good vegetables.  I remember my mom used to make stuffed tinda’s | round guards very often for special dinners so I thought I should give this recipe a try

The recipe was very simple though I gave a twist to it instead of simple stuffing (the recipe for this stuffing is also mentioned)  I used cottage cheese stuffing to make it more exotic …   I washed all tinda’s ….scraped and scooped… Chopped all the scooped tinda meat and fried it with onion mix grated or crumbled cottage cheese in it with masalas and appropriate seasonings. Stuff tinda with this stuffing and steam it in the steamer. Roll it in tomato onion curry as mentioned below.

Finally, I would like to suggest you few more recipes from my blog:

Bharwan tinda recipe with step by step pics. This stuffed tinda gravy is a Punjabi recipe of tinda or apple gourds in an onion-tomato based gravy

Ingredients

  • MY VERSION OF THE RECIPE-
  • 500 grams Tinda

  • For stuffing…
  • 250 grams paneer

  • 1 green chilli chopped

  • 1″ ginger chopped

  • Fresh Coriander chopped

  • 1 tbsp chopped nuts

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • For gravy
  • Oil 1/4 cup

  • Cumin seeds 1 teaspoon

  • Onion chopped1 medium

  • Ginger-garlic paste 1 tablespoon

  • Tomatoes chopped2 medium

  • Fresh coriander leaves chopped1 tablespoon

  • 1 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1 tsp coriander powder

  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder

  • Salt as required

Directions

  • Wash the tindas and wipe them dry. Cut a small disk on top of each tinda and Scoop it off with the help of a peeler and scrape off the thick outer skin. Keep scooped tinda for later use. ( see picture for reference )
  • Heat oil in a pan adds 4 Tbsp chopped onion sauté for a minute and then add chopped scooped tinda in its cover and cook till a little tender. Mix crumbled paneer, green chillies, ginger, coriander, nuts and salt mix well and stuff the scooped tindas with this mixture.
  • Fry or steam stuffed Tinda. For frying ( I fried it you can steam also) cover uncovered stuffed tinda with basen paste …just mix a little besan with water to make a paste out of it and spread it just to cover the top so that stuffing does not ooze out when frying. Fry till light golden in colour on medium hot oil.
  • For steaming, Place these tinda’s in a steamer ( I used the microwave for this ) and steam all of them till a little tender.
  • Heat oil in a skillet. Add the cumin seeds and when they change colour, add the onion and ginger-garlic paste and sauté for two to three minutes on medium heat.
  • Add the tomatoes and sauté till they become soft and pulpy. Add the remaining turmeric powder, remaining coriander powder and remaining red chilli powder and stir well to mix. If the mixture is too dry sprinkle a little water and sauté for a minute or two.
  • Add the stuffed tindas and sauté for three to four minutes. Add one cup of water and let it come to a boil.
  • Cover skillet with the lid and cook on medium/ slow flame for about 5-6 min. Or till oil separates, add 1/2 cup of water and adjust salt as required .cook for another 2-3 min.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot with any Indian flatbread.
