Tindora or Ivy gourd is also called by different names like the parwal, kundru, tondli in Marathi, Toroda, kunduri (Oriya), kovai, kundri or kovakkai in Malayalam and kovakka in Tamil, Dondakaya in Telugu or also baby watermelon or little gourd is a tropical vine.

Tindora are cute small looking, stubby, green coloured vegetables which grow aggressively on vines are used to prepare delicious stuffed curries, stews, pickles, salads and stir fries. They are minute version of cucumber. Tindora can be eaten raw and are a lot crunchier than cucumbers, or they may be cooked as a side dish or may be pickled. Tindora is available in abundance, fresh, cheap, healthy and tasty. But there are few in extremes that either hate this vegetable or just love it. But for me this was one my top dish which was very popular and prepared daily for the buffet. There are many variations to the Dondakaya fry depending on its region and taste.

Ivy gourd is available after the rainy season for about 6 months in a year. Most of the people love to grow this vegetable in their own kitchen garden. A variety of dishes can be prepared with this versatile vegetable like fries, chutney or stuffed with masala. Few also like to add it in Gojju which is usually prepared with the tender ivy guard. This fresh tender gourd is an easy dish for starters and a summer delight! Andhra style chutneys, especially vegetable based ones are common and regular in most of the kitchens in Andhra region. Tindora chutney is one simple and quickie recipe. This tindora chutney perks up any boring meal and would entice all tindora lovers.

There are a variety of recipes from all over the world that list Ivy Gourd as the main ingredient. It is often compared to bitter melon. The fruit is commonly eaten in Indian cuisine. Natives of Thailand, Indonesia, and other Southeast Asian countries also consume the fruit and leaves. Cultivation of ivy gourd in home gardens has been encouraged in Thailand due to its being a good source of several micronutrients, including vitamins A and C. It is eaten as a curry, by deep-frying it; stuffing it with masala and sautéing it; or boiling it first in a cooker and then frying it. It is also used in sambar, a vegetable and lentil-based soup.

Ivy gourd is rich in beta-carotene. Tindora contains a fabulous mix of complex carbohydrates, fibre, and a vast array of B vitamins and minerals. It is quite a valuable source of nutrients. New research shows that consuming 50 grams of kundru daily can help keep your blood sugar under check. A three-month study conducted by doctors at the Institute of Population Health and Clinical Research, Bangalore, has found that the common kundru, which looks like a poorer cousin of the tasty gourd parwal and has no particular gastronomic appeal, can reduce blood sugar levels in patients with mild diabetes.

Ivy gourd has been classified as a medicinal herb in traditional Thai and ayurvedic medicine. The parts used in diabetes treatment are the leaves, but the primary use of ivy gourd is culinary, and it is considered a vegetable. Ivy gourd contains beta-carotene, a major vitamin A precursor from plant sources. It is also considered a good source of protein and fiber.
