Tindo nu Athanu turns out crunchy and zesty. Tindora is my favorite vegetable. Even today if I were to visit my mom, she would make Tindora nu shak for both my brother and I as she knows it reminds us of our childhood . Every time we visit Indian grocery store we make a point to pick up some Tindora. Many times we have some left over Tindora and instead of just making little bit of shak, we make this delicious pickle that lasts in the fridge for a long time. My friends always called it Tendli ka Achaar and there are many versions of this pickle.
