The long beans in the Indian store used to intrigue me in my first few years in US (about 10 yrs back). I casually mentioned this vegetable to Amma over the phone and she told me that they are known as Barbatti (probably in Hindi) and that she used to make curry out of it when we were in Assam (sometime during 1978-82 time period). Anyway I don't remember seeing this vegetable in Hyderabad where I spent about 15 yrs. Over the years I have modified Amma's recipe to suit our changing tastes!! This is how I currently like and make :)

Notes - I used Italian flavored bread crumbs, so I didn't need to add any more salt or seasoning.
Tindora fry / Dondakaya vepudu is one of the easiest of the side dishes and yet delicious!! During my childhood, we were told that tindora is one such vegetable which has no essential nutrients and causes dullness of the brain ('Mandha Buddhi'). So it was always a neglected vegetable at home. To the contrary, I just learnt that Tindora is rich in Beta-Carotene and has numerous medicinal uses of its leaves and roots. It is supposedly good for diabetic patients. I wonder why this vegetable has been 'defamed', so to say, for so long.
Serve it as a side dish for Sambar/Dal and enjoy!
