Tondekai Palya

Ivy Gourd / Dondakaya / Tondekayi Stir fry is a tasty and a crispy fry. This fry can be done once a while when you feel bored of the regular type of tondekai palya. This fry goes with any kind of rasam or even suites well for curd rice. Got a chance to learn it from a friend of mine.
