Today am starting  this thursday with a simple sabji made of gherkins (tendli) Today's recipe is totally vegan and free from any animal product . Hope you like it .

Tendli or gherkins is a tasty vegetable and can be prepared in many ways. But I like it best with minimum spices .

This tendli fry is one of the simplest dishes the only time consuming part being the crushing of the tendli. This process ensures that the taste of garlic is well infused with the vegetable and the result is very yummy.

Have this with simple daal chawal and enjoy the meal.

Ingredients :

1/2 kg..................Tendli
10 to 15 ...............garlic cloves
1 tsp...................chilly powder
1/2 tsp.................turmeric powder
2 to 3 tbsp .............oil

Method :

Wash the tendli and crush it a bit by crushing stone on Khalbatta.
Also crush the garlic .

Heat oil in non stick pan and add the the crushed garlic.
When it becomes crisp and golden brown add the crushed tendli.
Add chilly , turmeric and salt .
Keep the gas on medium flame and keep on stirring occasionally .
Cood without covering the pan with a lid.
Normally this talasan requires the use of more oil, but I have used non stick pan and so
used much less oil than it requires.
Serve with daal rice of chapaties .
