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

1no Onion (chopped)
3nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4cup Freshly grated coconut
