Kundru (Ivy Gourd) is a tropical vegetable from the family of “pumpkins”.

It’s available in many parts of the world including India, China, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, etc. It has a very high content of water, complex carbs, iron, and vitamins.

A lot of people in India believe that it also regulates the blood sugar level in our body.

Since it has a high water content, it’s very mild in flavor hence it’s easier to make it into curries, dry vegetables OR fritters.

Initially, I was not a big fan of this vegetable as it didn’t taste very well, however, having it few times in different preparation, made it one of my fav veggie.

I especially love Besani Kundru (Ivy Gourd Vegetable in Chickpea Flour)for which the recipe is mentioned below:
