Kovaikkai Chutney

Kovaikkai is the Tamil pronunciation of the vegetable which is known as “Tindora” or “Tinde” in Hindi.  I came across this recipe when I went to my cousin’s place and the dish was prepared along with complete South Indian meals by my aunt who is a super chef and a homemaker. Since having it for the first time, I am in madly love with the taste of it as the dish is a bit on the spicier side and we Indians always love spicy food. The chutney is actually served along with other dishes in South Indian meals and consumed along with steamed rice. Starting with the procedure, the following is the list of ingredients required to prepare the dish;

 

Ingredients:-

 

Ivy gourd(Tinde)                  200 gm

Onion                                        1 pcs

Green Chilly                           3-4 pcs

Ginger                                       1 pcs

Garlic                                        3-4 pods

Tamarind                                20 gm

Cooking oil                             4-5 tbsp

Mustard seeds                     1 tbsp

Salt                                            As per the taste

Curry leaves                        5-6 pcs

 

 

Step-1 Cut the ivy gourd in long thin strips and dice the onion into small pieces so that they can be ground later easily.

 

Step-2 Heat 2 tbsp of cooking oil in a pan. Chop small pieces of garlic, ginger, green chilly and add them in the pan.

 

Step-3 Stir fry for few minutes until garlic turns golden brown in color. Once done, add diced onion and ivy gourd in the pan along with a small piece of tamarind. Allow the vegetables to cook for some time without covering the pan with a lid.

 

Step-4 Allow the mixture to come at room temperature when it is cooked. When the mixture gets cooled, transfer it into the mixing bowl. After adding salt to it, grind the mixture with the help of a mixture grinder.

 

[Note:- While grinding, do not add any amount of water as it will make the paste too loose in consistency.]

 

Step-5 While grinding, simultaneously heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and once it gets heated, add curry leaves and mustard seeds. When the seeds get popped, add the prepared paste in the pan and allow it to cook for 5 minutes. Once it is done, your chutney is ready to be served along with steamed rice.

All the vegetables are to be finely chopped in order to fill them in the tortillas.

 

 

Kick-starting with the recipe

Once you are ready with all the above ingredients, we can start with the proceedings.

Step:-1 In a pan, take 6-7 tbsp of oil and allow it to heat for sometime. Once it gets ready, add all chopped vegetables along with red baked kidney beans and stir them for a while.

[Note:- If you don’t have readymade tortilla sheets, you can make a similar one by using all-purpose flour along with a pinch of salt and water as a binding agent. Make thick round circular sheets of the dough preparation and cook them slightly and tada! Homemade tortillas are ready to use]

 

Step:-4 Sprinkle the cheese from the top, wrap the sheet from the sides as shown in the picture below and shallow fry the tortillas in a pan. You can also cook them in the oven if you avoid consuming oily food. Once the tortillas turn into golden brown color, they are ready to serve.
