Salt 1/2 tsp

For preparation of achar masala we need mostly the ingredients of achar masala except oil or vinegar. We have to take Fenugreek seeds,  Mustard seeds, Fennel seeds, coriander seeds, black seeds as a whole without crushing it. We should clean them first by hand. So that there should be no stones or anything extra. you can wash them, then dry to free them from debris. Now after washing and cleaning dry roast on low flame for 3-5 min. Keep stirring. After this whole masala roast let it cool for 2-3 minutes and pour in your grinder. Very fine grinding is not recommended but it’s up to your taste. I use this as a little granular. After grinding add chilli flakes, salt and mix. But if you have whole, round red chilies then add them in your mixer and keep it little flaked.

preparation of masala for achari tinday

For making a filling aur bharwan masala we will take two medium size onions, chop it into very small pieces. Make ginger and garlic paste. For making ginger garlic paste grind 10 cloves of garlic and about 1 inch piece of peeled ginger. All this paste and chopped onion will not be used in this step. We will only  use 1 tsp of paste and 2 tbsp of chopped onion. Rest will be used in making gravy.

For making the filling, take oil in a pan let it hot for 5 min then add onion 3 tbsp saute it till onion gets translucent on low flame. Then add 1 tbsp of ginger garlic paste and saute till colour gets golden. Add salt, chilli powder and chopped achar. 

How to cut tinday ki sabzi for filling:

For this recipe we have to be a bit careful in cutting off teeday or apple gourds. We will not cut it into halves or quarters. Instead we make a plus sign on the lower portion of tinday and cut only half the length of each tinday or apple gourd. This is how we can fill up the achar masala and keep them off from mixing in the gravy. As a result you will get a good presentation. 

Filling in apple gourd:

For filling, hold apple gourd one by one in your hand and press gently to open a little and fill with masala. You can use a knife for filling. Be careful not to press too tight so the apple gourd breaks. You can use your thumb to make some space.

At this stage add salt, turmeric powder, paprika powder and saute for 1 min. Now add one cup of chopped tomatoes. If you like more spice then add black pepper 1tbsp.
