Pudalangai Podimas (Snake Gourd)

It's a simple, easy and healthy recipe...I made it for Tamizhar Samayal event, where we post Tamilnadu cuisine on every second and fourth week of Tuesday.

Usually my Amma makes pudalangai kootu with Bengal dal, which taste delicious..
I want to try some thing new and tried this from Mr. Damu (Chef) recipes, and made this Podimas, it taste delicious and even you can make pudalangai rice by mixing it with rice with a dash of ghee, Oh that will be great for lunch box.

Blend of coconut with gratted snake gourd gives a yummy twist to this recipe...Try this simple recipe and enjoy....Yeah a pure Vegan recipe from my kitchen :)


Snake gourd - 3 nos.
coconut - 2 tbsp.
Green chilly - 2
Mustard - 1/4 tsp
Jeera - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves few
Salt to taste
Oil to temper


Remove the skin  of snake gourd by scrubbing the outer portion gently.
Cut lenth wise and remove the seeds inside it, make it shallow.
Now Grate the snake gourd and keep it aside.
Grind Coconut, jeera and green chillies in mixer without water and keep it aside.
Now Heat a pan with 3 tsp oil and temper with mustard and curry leaves.
Add the gratted snack gourd and sauté it well.
Add salt.
Do not use water, you have to sauté the Veg until it gets cooked and the water in it evaporates.
Now add the grinded coconut and sauté for 3 minutes.
It tastes great as side dish for any rice combinations.
