Often used in vegetarian recipes, Tindora, also known as Ivy Gourd, looks like a cross between a cucumber and a small gourd. The outer skin is tougher than a cucumber, with more seeds on the inside.
Tindora provides natural forms of vitamins A and C and is high in beta carotene when ripe.
These can be eaten raw, pickled, fried, or steamed and taste great as a garnish.
