Zucchini may be substituted for tindora (ivy gourd), an Indian vegetable available only at Asian markets. For that matter almost any finely sliced or chopped veggies could stand in for the tindora as well. The important thing is that you simply make this delicious "fried rice" recipe. Pilafs such as ours need be served only with yogurt and sliced onions to complete the meal, although cucumber salad and hard-boiled eggs are equally appropriate accompaniments. Thanks to the comprehensive blog Plantain Leaf for the recipe!
