Padavalanga Thoran / Snakegourd Thoran

A simple, everyday recipe.


Snakegourd - 1 medium
Small onions - 5-6, thinly sliced
Green chilly - 2, slit lengthwise
Garlic - 1 clove, crushed
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Salt - as needed
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch


1. Clean the snakegourd and remove the seeds. Wash thoroughly. Chop them finely.
2. Heat a kadai, add oil. Once hot, splutter the mustard seeds.
3. Saute the small onions for few seconds and then add the crushed garlic and green chillies. Saute till the raw smell is gone.
4. Add the chopped snakegourd pieced along with grated coconut. Sprinkle some salt and the turmeric powder. Mix well. Sprinkle some water if needed. Cover and cook till the snakegourd pieces are cooked well. Towards the end cook with the kadai open so that all the moisture dried up.
