tendli is one of my favourites. I buy tendli very often. It tastes wonderful when it is tender.But it ripens very quickly and tastes tangy. In such cases, I make this gojju. It is very simple to make and yummy.



  • tendli - 1 cup
  • green chillies - 2 to 3
  • curry leaves - 6 to 7
  • grated coconut - 2 tablespoons
  • mustard - 1/4 teaspoon
  • hing/asafoetida - a pinch
  • salt to taste


  • Wash and pressure cook the tendli
  • When it cools, mash it coarsely with a serving spoon.
  • Add salt, green chillies, grated coconut and mix well
  • Temper with mustard, curry leaves and hing
  • Serve with rice and curry of your choice

Preparation time: 20 minutes

If the tendli is not ripe and sour, you can add tamarind.
