Thanjavur Style Pudalangai Poriyal | Pudalangai Kari | Snake Gourd Stir Fry | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe from Tamil Nadu

Pudalangai Poriyal

Hi Supermoms,

Snake Gourd /Pudalangai is a tasty as well as a healthy vegetable. It is a cooling vegetable and is consumed a lot during the summer months . High in dietary fibre and rich in vitamins , the snake gourd is easy to cook too. Today, I am sharing a quick and easy stir fry recipe .

You can finely chop the snake gourd if you like.  But I like to cut it this way as it looks really pretty. Select tender snake gourd to make this dish. They taste the best. 

Serve it as a side to your flatbreads or enjoy it along with rice for lunch.
