Padavalanga thoran (Snake gourd with coconut)
This is a simple recipe, which reminds me of my childhood days..... My uncle was a farmer, and he used to cultivate snake gourd in our backyard. So this was one of the most common recipes that my grandmother used to make in our home. I still remember those funny days when my uncle told me that snake gourd was actually snakes that are being tied up in the rope and is mainly used to prepare dishes with the flesh of snakes. He still teases me by saying the same story to my husband and tells him that how I was afraid of the vegetable. This recipe is simple to make and the beauty of the curry attracts everyone, especially the kids.
