- "Combinin' a hearty blend of meat and veg with a scorchin' seasonin' mix, this concoction would make even the hardiest Mandalorian sweat themselves right outta that crazy armor of theirs."
- ―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook
Tiingilar was a hearty and traditional Mandalorian stew made with a multicolored blend of meat, various vegetables, and a potent mix of spices. The mere scent of tiingilar was allegedly hot enough to burn an individual's nose hairs.
Although the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs was not a member of the predominantly human Mandalorian culture, he came into possession of a recipe for authentic tiingilar. Tuggs believed the flavorful dish's potency reflected the Mandalorian people's reputation for strength and their love of a challenge; according to him, the concoction was spicy enough to make even the hardiest Mandalorian warriors sweat themselves out of their armor when they consumed it.
In 34 ABY, Tuggs published the recipe in his cookbook The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, a collection of his favorites, with the title "spicy Mandalorian stew." Noting that he did not know how to translate the Mando'a name of the dish, he speculated that tiingilar roughly meant "eat at your own risk."
Behind the scenes
In the new Star Wars canon, tiingilar was introduced as a recipe in the 2019 cookbook Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which was written by Marc Sumerak and Chelsea Monroe-Cassel. The out-of-universe recipe uses the following ingredients: olive oil, yellow onion, minced garlic, fresh ginger, chopped chicken thighs, red apple, all-purpose flour, carrots, purple potato, garam masala, curry powder, tomato paste, sugar, soy sauce, chicken broth, and pearl couscous.

- Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook states that tiingilar is a traditional Mandalorian dish. According to Friends Like These, members of the Mandalorian culture are typically of the human species. Therefore, it can be reasonably concluded that most Mandalorians who eat tiingilar are human, which would mean tiingilar is edible by humans.

- Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that the in-universe book was published at the same time as when the First Order was searching for the Resistance base on Batuu. As that search occurs in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which is set in 34 ABY according to the reasoning here, the cookbook must have been published in 34 ABY.
