Tendli baath or ivygourd/kovakkai  rice/tindora chawal recipe
Again, this one has been in my drafts for a long time and when I write this I feel I really have to gear up myself and come back to serious blogging. There has been no proper cooking (only the usual routine food) , no baking and no taking pictures for a while now. I got a new camera and I still have to learn and experiment with it. First having guests was an excuse (well , that is true), but now its laziness or I do need a break now. But now its high time I do something about it. I hope you encourage me with your inspiring comments.

Ok now coming back to this recipe for today. I had this dish at a Maharashtrian friends place. I was invited for a small party before my wedding. Maharashrian's call it "Kelvan" if I am right. Well I really loved this one, but never tried making it. One fine day I was reminded of it and decided to make. It tasted really good though am not sure I followed the exact recipe as my friends. But definitely a good one if you are bored of having the usual rice or pulao.
