Pudalangai Poricha Kuzhambu | Porichcha kulambu recipe | Snake gourd kuzhambu | Pudalangai Recipes

Pudalangai kuzhambu

I am actually new to this Pudalangai Poricha Kuzhambu. I usually prepare Pudalangai kootu or Pudalangai poriyal most of the time. So when I bought the snake gourd a week before and not sure what recipe to cook with this veggie as I am bored of preparing the same recipe. So browsed the net and got the recipe from here. It tasted good and I liked the taste. Planning to prepare this one more time.
