Pudalangai puttu/Snake gourd puttu

This recipe is loved by every one in my family!! when sunitha announced this month's event I thought of all dishes which has cumin as major spice and this dish instantly came to my mind.



Ingredients
1. Snake gourd -4
2. Onion -3
3. Red Chillies -4
4. Cumin seeds – 2 tsp
5. Garlic – 15 pods
6. Salt – as per the requirement
7. Channa dhal – ¾ cup
8. Curry leaves
9. Oil – as per the requirement

Method
Soak the channa dhal for one hour. Grind the channa dhal with cumin seeds ,red chillies ,garlic pods and salt .
Chop the onions, snake gourd . Heat oil in a pan and sauté onion and curry leaves. After sometime put the snake gourd and sauté thoroughly. No need to put salt in this since salt has already been put in the channa dhal paste. Then put the ground paste and let it cook in medium flame. Oil can be poured generously to enhance the taste while sautéing.
