Ash gourd Stir Fry | Vellai Poosanikai Poriyal | White pumpkin Poriyal

Vellai poosanikai poriyal

Ash gourd also known as white pumpkin in English (Vella poosanikai in Tamil, Boodhu kumbalakai in Kannada, Kumbalanga in Malayalam, Petha in Hindi ) is a super healthy vegetable that is a rich source of Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Pottasium, Zinc and Vitamin C. It is used to treat obesity and helps to maintain the PH ratio in our body.

Ash gourd rasavangi is our family favourite recipe. Apart from this, I add ash gourd in more kuzhambu which gives a hotel taste and flavor. Recently I tried this white pumpkin stir fry / Vellai poosanaikai poriyal as side dish for sambar rice. Its preparation is so simple and takes very less cooking time as ash gourd is a watery vegetable.

      Ulundu Murukku | Urad Dal Mururkku Recipe | Ulundhu Murukku

      urad dal murukku

      Last year I bookmarked this super crispy and white colored Ulundu murukku / Urad dal murukku recipe from Sakthi samayal Youtube channel.  For this year Diwali, I started my sweets and snacks preparation with Instant doodh peda with milk powder and this super white, crunchy Urad dal murukku / Ulundu murkku. 

      For every diwali, we make thenkuzhal murukku at home by using Idiyappam flour and roasted urad dal flour. We all love it. But this ulundu murukku is prepared by pressure cooking urad dal, ground to a smooth paste and then added to store bought dry rice flour.  There is no need to use idiyappam flour as well. It comes out so well even in the first attempt. In fact, I loved this murukku. I am sure I will make this murukku every year for Diwali. But one thing, this murukku absorbs some oil when compared with thenkuzhal. As we are using boiled Urad dal, this murukku absorbs little oil. So it won't come out dry.  But there is no compromise in taste, flavor and crunchiness when compared with our thenkuzhal. 

      Don’t worry even if you are a beginner. You will get it perfect if you follow the steps given below. Lets see how to make this crunchy urad dal chakli / ulundu murukku with step by step pictures.

      Check out my other murukku recipes too.
