Stuffed Snake Gourd Fritters Recipe

Two boiled potatoes lying in the refrigerator stared at me every time I opened it. A small fistful of roasted peanuts, left over after making Peanut chutney looked imploringly at me, asking me to finish them off. Semolina, Rice flour and Besan began to wonder what they would be used for when I brought them out and placed them side by side on the kitchen counter top. Little did they know that they would all end up together in some amazingly delicious stuffed Snake Gourd Fritters!

Ingredients :

  • 2 boiled potatoes
  • 2 tbsps roasted peanuts
  • 1 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
  • 3 green chillies
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tbsps Besan/Chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsps rice flour
  • 4 tbsps Semolina
  • 8 roundels of Snake gourd
  • Salt
  • Oil for roasting

Method :

Deskin the Snake gourd. Wash and cut either diagonally or round into slices. Microwave them for a couple of minutes to soften them and so that they shallow fry easily. Peel the boiled potatoes and mash them. Powder the peanuts and add it to the mash. Coarsely grind the green chillies along with the jeera and tip it into the potato and peanut mash along with Lemon juice and salt. Mix all the ingredients well and stuff this mixture into the Snake gourd. Take Besan, Semolina and Rice flour in a plate and mix well. Dust the stuffed Snake Gourd in this mixture and refrigerate for an hour. Heat a tava/ skillet. Brush it with oil. Place the pieces of snake gourd on it and drizzle with a little oil. Roast till they turn a nice golden yellow. Flip. Roast on the other side too. Serve hot.
