PUDALANGAI FRY | SNAKE GOURD CURRY RECIPE

snake gourd -fry

We always make snake gourd curry in the same way we make beans curry. Also we make snake gourd kootu too. This pudalangai fry i learnt from a very good friend of mine, recently. The way she told me about the recipe, tempted me to try it immediately. Since i had small fresh snake gourd at home gave this this a try yesterday and clicked too. I was busy for the past 3 days and couldn't concentrate on blog much. I went for a trip to India to attend a wedding with my friends. A discussion about my recently published cookbook was arranged by Vikatan publications. It was Live Radio discussion with culinary expert Revathi Shanmugam. On the day before wedding, my husband's grandmother passed away and i couldn't attend the wedding. Since the radio program was planned before hand i have to attend it. It went well and i will soon the audio file with you all. These 3 days trip was full of mixed emotions, Started my work from today. Stay tuned for more recipes as festival are coming up from this week.
