Snake Gourd is a fantastic vegetable loaded with many health benefits. But it has a tendency to get a oily glaze when cooked. Its something I don’t particularly fancy. This recipe gets rid of this by not using any oil.
- Cumin seeds
- Coriander seeds
- Dry red chilies
- Snake Gourd, peeled and cut into small pieces.
- Chopped up tomato
- Aamchoor Powder.
Heat a pan and dry roast all the spices. As they release a lovely aroma, add the snake gourd. Cook on high flame and keep stirring. As the snake gourd starts to soften up and this may take only 7 to 8 mins, taste and check if its done. If satisfied, sprinkle some aamchoor powder and salt. Mix it well. But in minute or two, this will form a slightly sticky layer at the base of the pan. Now add the tomato and mix it up. This will clean up the pan.
