dondakaya fry andhra style, dondakaya vepudu deep fry recipe

Dondakaya Fry Andhra style or Dondakaya Vepudu Deep Fry recipe is an easy to make recipe, tastes awesome and goes well with rotis and rice as well. This recipe is also known as tindora bhaji or donda fry or kundru in hindi, dondakaya vepudu in telugu and or kovakkai poriyal in tamil and Ivy gourd in english which is rich in beta-carotene and benefits in eye problems and skin disorders.

Chopping ivy gourds is sure a time taking process but the end product will be super scrumptious. Dondakaya is a watery vegetable and hence it is good to eat in summers. I prepare this recipe at least twice a month. 

I served this  recipe with "Majjiga chaaru" but Sambar or Rasam also suits better. You can serve this recipe with chapathi also. Do check my gravy recipe made using Tindora i.e. Dondakaya Masala Curry and also do check another fry variety named Dondakaya Kobbari Fry.
