Tindora (Kovaikkai) Curry

Tindora or Kovaikkai Curry is probably one of the easiest recipes that I have come up with. Except for the difficulty of obtaining these vegetables, the rest is easy. So easy to make, very healthy, so tasty, so colorful, and just a little salt and oil is all that you really need. So it is a shame if this dish is not made at least once.
