Spicy Apple Gourd Curry/ Masala Tinda Curry

A few days ago, I was talking to some Co-blogger friends of mine related to cooking and some other food related topics. Then during the whole conversation one of my friend +Kalyani Momchef from “Sizzling Tastebuds” asked me about Apple Gourd recipe. 

Today I post “Spicy Apple Gourd Curry or Masala Tinda Curry” for her. Under this recipe, we have to cook the tinda or apple gourd with spices and very special ingredient which my mom used i.e. cream or Malai. Cream made this recipe so creamy, and delicious more. You can serve this curry with chapatti and curd. I was to share Masala Tinda recipe for BM 31 under Main course theme. Hope everyone enjoy this recipe, please share your feedback with us under comment sections.
