Kovakkai varuval recipe or tindora fry

Kovakkai varuval is delicious traditional South Indian style stir fry variety. This tindora fry is a simple and basic recipe made with minimal ingredients. It is very easy to make. I have cooked the kovakkai in pressure cooker this makes the process even more quick and tastes more yummy.Make sure you add very little water just enough to cook the kovakkai. If you are not comfortable in cooking with pressure cooker you can cook directly in the kadai. Check out how to make this delicious crispy kovakkai varuval recipe below.

Ginger garlic paste-1 tsp
