Podlangai Poriyal
Podalangai / Snack gourd is one of my favourite veggie. I usually use this up in sambar, poriyal or kootu. Snack gourd like most vegetables has many health benefits its full of fibre, aids weight loss and it is said that juice of it when used in scalp can treat alopecia. They are natures way of cooling the body hence make use of this vegetable to the best during scorching summers. Today I wanted to share a simple stir fry/ poriyal using podalangai/ snack gourd.
