Snake gourd isn’t a vegetable relished by many, but you will love this simple Stir fry. Easy to make and really delicious. I love to eat it as is, rather than as an accompaniment though it goes well with Rice and Roti too.
- 250 gms Snake Gourd
- 2 green chillies
- 1 tsp Coconut oil (or any oil)
- 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
- 1/2tsp Urad Dal/Black gram Dal
- 1 tbsp sugar or a piece of jaggery
- 1/4 tsp Hing/asafoetida
- 2 tbsps grated coconut
Peel the Snake Gourd. Wash and slice lengthwise. Chop into half moons. Chop the green chillies fine. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard and after it splutters add the Urad Dal. After this turns golden yellow add finely chopped green chillies and Hing. Toss till they change colour. Add the chopped snake gourd, sugar and salt. Mix thoroughly. Cover and cook over a very slow flame till done. Garnish with grated coconut and serve immediately.
