Tinda is a simple vegetable found commonly in India. There is a joke associated with the title of this post, hence the title
This is a very simple way to make this. To find this vegetable in US, go to any Indian store.
1 onion chopped,
spice mix: 1/2 tsp cumin powder, 1 tsp cumin (jeera) powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder, 1 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp turmeric (haldi)
little oil for cooking
Wash and chop the vegetable. Fry the onions till red and then add the spices, saute for less than a minute and add water (to prevent burning). When it starts bubbling add the chopped vegetable. Let it cook open for sometime, then cover and cook till done! If it starts to burn (like mine did last weekend), add a few spoons of water.
We ate it will simple daal (lentils) and steamed rice.
