Dahi Walla Tinda
In a most shocking news here, I love tinda. The small round ones stuffed with masala or the ones made as a simple onion-tomato curry or the nawabi malai tinda or a simple tinda stir fry. Some years ago mum started making these dahi walla tinda and when I ate it the first time it was an instant hit, we make it at home on a regular basis now and going with the theme at blog these days posting of everyday recipes, here is the dahi walla tinda. Easy and fast to make but will shine on the dinner table
