Tindora is a popular Indian vegetable resembling a small cucumber. Also known as Indian Ivy Gourd, its taste is somewhere between a gourd and a cucumber, with a juicy, mild bitter crunch. Tindoras can be eaten raw or boiled, steamed or fried. They're also delicious stuffed. In India, ivy gourd is often recommended to diabetics due to its low glycemic index and its possible role in regulating blood glucose.
