I am a BIG fan of Rujuta Diwekar. In fact, both my husband and I are. We’ve read her books, articles, her interviews and incorporated it into our lifestyle. She recently posted an article on the goodness of Ivy Gourd which inspired me to share this humble recipe with you.
I’ve always had Tindora this way. It’s a simple everyday recipe. Ready in less than 30 minutes and packed with nutrition. As Rujuta mentioned, it’s a storehouse of Vitamin B1 & B2 and minerals like Iron. Great at battling fatigue, PMS bloating or just to kick start your metabolism.
