Tindora Nu Shaak in Pressure Cooker

Tindora Nu Shaak is a famous Gujarati Sabji. Tindora in english is the Ivy Gourd, coming from the pumpkin family. The vegetable is oval in shape, green in color but tends to turn red when it is riped. This vegetable should be washed well, and can be cut long, ring shaped, chopped, but it tends to stick while cutting. I have made this sabji in pressure cooker, it took less time to get prepared.
Tindora 1 cup, cut lengthwise
Potato 1
Green chili - Ginger paste 1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red Chili powder 1 tsp
Coriander -  Cumin powder 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 tsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Water 1/2 cup
For Garnish:
Freshly chopped Coriander leaves 

Boil potato in pressure cooker for 5 - 6 whistles. Open when cool. Peel and cut the boiled potato lengthwise.   
In a pressure cooker, heat oil. Add mustard seeds, once it splutters, add asafoetida. Now add tindora, boiled potato and mix.
{Tip - don't mix with a spatula, but just shake with the cooker handle, so that the vegetable doesn't gets cut}.

Now add green chili - ginger paste, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander - cumin powder, salt, and water and again shake and mix well.

Now close the lid of the cooker, and cook for 3 whistles in slow flame. After 3 whistles, open when the pressure is released.

Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Serve with roti and dal.
