  3. As the mustard splutters, add split black gram and fry till them till it turns golden brown.

  4. Break in the dry red chillies into half into the kadai and add curry leaves along.

  5. After a few seconds of frying them, add the cashew nuts, slit manoli or ivy gourd and turmeric. Toss the veggies and cashews to mix with the tempering. Keep sauteing for a couple of minutes on medium heat.

  6. Add salt , sugar  and about 1/2 cup of water and mix everything well. Now cover and cook in low heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until the ivy gourds are tender. Make sure not to overcook the Tindora though. Both the Tindora and cashew nuts should be soft but slightly crunchy.
