Coming to today's recipe, its snake gourd kootu. Off late, I've been making a lot of kootu's :):)



Ingredients:
Snake Gourd - 1 (medium size)
Channa Dal - 1 hand
Moong dal - 1/2 hand
Coconut - 2 spoons
Cumin seeds - 1 spoon
Green chilli - 2
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds
Urad dal

Method:
1. The snake gourd I get here has a very thick skin, so I peeled it off slightly. But, it can be used without peeling. Cut the gourd.
2. Boil the channa dal and moong dal together
3. Make a past of coconut, cumin and chilli and keep it separately
4. When the dal is boiled 75%, add the snake gourd and let it boil
5. Add salt, turmeric powder
6. Add the paste and leave it in heat
7. Heat oil, splutter mustard seeds and urad dal and add it to the kootu.
