tondali bhat, tondli bhat, tondalee bhaat, ivy gourd rice, marathi recipes, ivy gourd recipesIngredients:
1 cup Basmati Rice
2 cups water
15 to 18 Tondali (Ivy Gourd)
Spice Blend: 1 tsp oil or ghee, 1 inch Cinnamon stick, 2 Cardamom, 4 pepper corn, 4 cloves, 1/4 tsp cumin seeds, 3 dry red chilies, 2 tbsp fresh scraped coconut
For Tempering: 1 tbsp Ghee, 1/8 tsp Mustard seeds, 1/4 tsp cumin seeds, 2 pinches asafoetida, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, 5 to 6 curry leaves
7 to 8 cashew nuts
Salt to taste
Finely chopped Cilantro, fresh scraped coconut for garnishing
Pure ghee

1) Wash rice with water. Drain and leave aside for 15 minutes.
2) Wash Tondali with water. Cut off the ends. Cut each tondali lengthwise, into 4 quarters. Immerse cut tondali into water.
3) To make spice blend, heat 1 tsp oil and add all the whole spices. Then saute dry chilies and coconut. Saute over medium low heat and remove from heat after 2 minutes. Once this mixture becomes cool, grind it to a fine powder.
4) Heat 1 tbsp ghee into a pan. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, turmeric powder and curry leaves. Turn the heat to low. Add cashew nuts and tondali. Saute for a minute. Now turn off the heat.
5) In a microwave safe bowl, add 2 cups of water. Microwave for 2 minutes over high power. Add washed rice, salt, sauteed tondali mixture (Step 4), and spice blend (step 3). Mix nicely.
6) Microwave over high power (100) for 5 minutes and over medium power (40) for 15 minutes. While microwaving, give a nice stir after 10 minutes.
Transfer cooked rice to serving plates. Garnish with cilantro, coconut, and pure Ghee. Serve hot.

1) 2 cups of water is enough for 1 cup of rice. However, some people like little moist Rice. For that, you can use 1/4 cup more water to microwave the rice.
2) The Tempering (Step 4) can be done in the microwave. However, tempering prepared in a pan over stove-top has more flavor.
3) This Rice can be prepared in a deep pan over stove-top. Follow first 3 steps from the above recipe. Prepare tempering (Step 4) in a deep pan, saute washed rice for a minute. Add hot water, spice blend and salt. Mix nicely and cook covered over medium heat.
