Kovakkai Chutney recipe, with video, a chutney with tindora pairs well with rice and with idli and dosa too.
A few days back when i was invited for lunch by my friend she made a wonderful platter of Andra Meals. She is a very talented cook and i have learnt a lot of cookery tips from her. In that menu there was a yummy thogaiyal and when she told it was made from tindora| kovakkai i  was so surprised and i took the recipe from her and tried kovakkai chutney today. Hurray! i got the exact taste.

    When to add Garlic and wondering if we add raw onion I thought it would give paachai vasanai.
