    Nice, love your version. How we make it is, soak moong daal, make a paste of onion-ginger-garlic-tomato-corriander and give it in tadka. Add moong daal and then the snake gourd and cook. Am going to try your version for sure

      Oh, my mom makes something similar , we do add onion, ginger & garlic but the traditional method does not include them. Thanks though, your version also sounds yummy.

    Supernga.. Its been long since I had this. In my hubby’s family after coming back from Kasi they stopped eating this. So preparing this become rare. But its one of my favorite veggie. Lovely

    Hi Mullai,

    Tried this today..Came out very well as far as the taste is concerned.

    I think i roasted the Moong dhall too much and also it was not smashed alongwith the vegetable even after boiling.Is this how the recipe expected to be or should I have left it for sometime on the stove?



    1. Mullai

      Manu, roasting moong is optional and usually while doing so.. there are chances for it to go slightly coarse as you mentioned when cooked over stove top. Pressure cooking should cook them thoroughly, roasting gives nice aroma but not necessary.. so ignore next time if you find it difficult. Thanks.
