How to make Snake Gourd Moru Kootan

  1. Cut the snake gourd into big round shapes. Cook it by adding water, turmeric powder, red chilli powder. Since I have sliced it big, it will take sometime, cook till it becomes soft.
  2. Grind the ingredients mentioned under grind. Add this ground mix to the cooked snake gourd. When it boils well, add the beaten curd with salt. Mix well. When it just begins to boil, Turn off the flame.
  3. Then season with the ingredients mentioned under seasoning and pour over the mix. Podalanga Moru Kootan is ready to be served.

My Tip:

Seasoning with coconut oil, it will increase the flavour.
