Pudalangai Poriyal | Snake gourd Stir fry | How to make Pudalangai Poriyal | Pudalangai Recipes | Poriyal Recipes | Side dishes for Rice

Pudalangai / Snakegourd is one of easy to cook vegetable. Today I prepared the Pudalangai Poriyal / Snake gourd Stir Fry. I love this vegetable because of its simplicity and its health benefits. I paired it with sambar sadham and it really goes well with it. Now to the recipe...

How to make Pudalangai Poriyal

Preparation time: 10 min | Cook Time: 15 min | Serves: 4
Recipe Category: Side dish | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

  • Pudalangai / Snake gourd - 1
  • Channa dal / Bengal gram - 3 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - a pinch
  • Urud dal - 1 tsp
  • Dry red chillies - 4
  • Onion - 1 medium chopped finely
  • Coconut - 1/4 cup (grated)
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Salt - as per taste


1. Wash the snakegourd and scrape the outer skin with the knife.
2. Cut lengthwise and remove the seeds. Then cut the snakegourd into small pieces as shown.

3. In a small pan, wash and pressure cook the channa dal / bengal gram with little turmeric for 1 or 2 whistle. Do not overcook it, as it may turn mushy. It should look as shown in the below picture (cooked dal)

4. In a kadai / wok, add the oil, and when it is hot, add the mustard seeds, urud dal, curry leaves, red chillies and onion one by one as mentioned.
5. Cook till onion are half cooked.
6. Add in the snake gourd and channa dal and mix well.

7. You can sprinkle some water while cooking to for the snake gourd to get cooked. Take care not to add more.
8. When they are done, add in the grated/shredded coconut and mix well.
9. Cook for another 2 to 3 min and switch off the stove.

10. Serve it as a side dish for rasam sadam or sambar sadam as I do.
