Instant Pot Tindora  Stir fry with Raw Mango – Side for Roti – 5 Ingredients . Less time when compared to stove top .

Tindora stir fry with raw mango in Instant pot.  Tindora is a very tasty vegetable you feel like eating as a snack . You can serve with Steamed rice, Roti( Indian Bread) or with Scrambled egg . This is the first time I tried Tindora in IP . I cooked in 6 qt so it will have wide space to saute( if you want little roasted vegetable)  once you pressure cook . I’m trying to cook all vegetables in IP. To my surprise they cooked in  very very less  time . I added 2 tbsp  water to build the pressure. Next time I will try without water. I cooked Banana Peppers without water and no burnt bottom. I added 20 big  handfuls of sliced Tindora . All cooked perfectly . I added corasely grinded raw mango with spices at the end as raw mangoes are in season. Here is the Simple recipe with few ingredients.

Tindora is good source of fiber . Fiber intake has number of benefits to the body. Fiber supports healthy blood sugar levels by helping body to digest sugars slowly , offsetting the effect of sugar entering the bloodstream . Eating foods high in fiber promotes feeling of fullness which helps curb appetite and support healthy weight . Source : HM
