  6. Hi Indira,

    Today I took my daughter shopping to several Indian groceries — a small ethnic enclave of Asian and Latin stores I don’t often get to visit. We had so much fun looking at the lovely produce — so many brinjals and gourds, greens, etc. I prefer fresh always, but frozen tinda seem to cook up nicely so I do buy those. Your photo is very appealing, as always! :)

  7. All these days, I assumed that Parval and Tindora are one and the same. Punjabi tinda - I’m seeing for the first-time here.
    This post is englightening!
    Thank you!

  8. Kovakai is my fav. Also potels or parvals when stirred fried. Never heard of Punjabi tinda.

  9. Hi Indira, amazing pic. Tendli and padval are so much a part of konkani and maharashtrian cuisine. I’m pretty new to the Food Blog world. Very nice work on FBD.

  10. Fresh parval and punjabi tinda are rare at local Indian grocery shops and I got lucky last weekend.

    Linda: What a fun thing to do on weekend!
    I wish I was there with you as I love browsing at grocery shops. Here we have lot of Vietnamese, Korean and Thai grocery shops. I often go there to look and read the labels. Great way to learn about new ingredients etc.

    Eskay: Thanks. Congratulations on your new blog.
