Snakegourd Stir fry/Podalanga Poriyal

Sometimes a simple curry may turn our lunch or dinner absolutely wonderful na, this simple snakegroud stir fry is one among those simple stir fry which goes prefect along with sambar or rasam at the same time one of my favourite side dish which my mom never failed to feed us atleast once in a week, i still remember whenever we go to our grandma's village, we guys go with our grandma to pluck fresh snakegourds from her backyard and prepare this simple stir fry with loads of freshly grated coconut...This stir fry makes me nostalgic and am sending this dish to Gayathri's Walking Through The Memory Lane..

Snakegourd poriyal

2cups Snakegourd (chopped)
1no Onion (chopped)
3nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4cup Freshly grated coconut
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil

Heat enough oil,let splutters the mustard seeds, urad dal and cumin seeds, add now the chopped onions,slit opened green chillies and curry leaves, sauté until the onions turns transculent...immediately add the chopped snakegourd and salt,stir for few minutes in high flame and put the flame in simmer,springle some water, cover the pan with lid, stir occasionally until the veggies get cooked..Finally add the grated coconut,cook for few seconds and put off the stove..
