Snake Gourd Poriyal

Dear Supermoms,

Today I am sharing a tasty side dish using Snake Gourd - The Snake Gourd Poriyal or the Pudalangai Poriyal or Pudalangai Kari as we call it at home. 

You can use sambar powder to spice up this Kari or can use the chilli powder and coriander powder as I have shown in the video. Either way, it tastes yummy. 

Watch the detailed method to make the Snake Gourd Poriyal in the video below

How to cook Snake Gourd

Chef Tips: 

1. Chop the Snake Gourd into thin slices. This helps it to cook faster. You can also finely chop them. 

2.Add salt to the sliced Snake Gourd and allow it to sit at least for 15 minutes. Squeeze the excess water and cook the Snake Gourd. 

3.Allow the onions to fry well before you add the snake gourd.

4.Cook in an iron vessel for the authentic taste.
