Pudalangai Poriyal  | Snake Gourd Stir Fry | நாட்டு புடலங்காய் பொரியல்  is yet another simple recipe which goes well for rice along with sambar, rasam or curd. We get two varieties of snake gourd, one is short & fat, called as “panneer pudalai” and other one is thin & long, called as “nattu pudalai”. Last week, when i went to Mylapore, I had seen a fresh, tender, lengthy  snake gourd.  Immediately i grabbed that and made a delicious stir fry.

For seasoning:
  • Oil – 1 tbsp

  • Urad dhal – 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves – few.

  1. Wash snake gourd well in running water , cut into two lengthwise, remove the inner parts and cut into thin slices. Keep it aside.
  2. Heat oil in a kadai and season with the items given “For seasoning”.

  • I didn’t add water while cooking snake gourd because it was so tender and also I used it fresh. If you have to add water, just drizzle few drops. If you add more water to this nattu pudalai, the entire thing will become mushy.
