Potlakaya(snake gourd)- 1 big one, peeled and cut into cubes
Ginger powder-1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder- 1 tsp
Shredded coconut-2 tbsp
For seasoning: mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies, channa dal, hing and curry leaves.
1. Heat oil and when it is hot add the seasoning ingredients and let them splutter. I like more channa dal in my curry but its up to you how much you add.
2. Now add onions,turmeric and ginger powder and fry for some time.
3. Then add potlakaya pieces and cook with the lid closed. This vegetable cooks very fast.
4. When the potlakaya pieces become soft, add salt, red chill powder and fry. Finally add coconut and cook for 2 minutes and switch off the stove.
