Print Friendly and PDF
snake gourd poriyal with chana dal
Recently I tasted this snake gourd poriyal with chana dal in a hotel in Tamil nadu. Usually I make snake gourd poriyal (Pudalangai poriyal in Tamil) with moong dal, onion and green chilli. But when I tasted this type of poriyal in that hotel with snake gourd, onion, chana dal / kadalai paruppu and sambar powder as major ingredients, I was tempted to try at home. Last week I prepared it as side dish for sambar rice. As usual I made this dish directly in a pressure cooker to ease my job and to save time. It came out so well. Tasted great with sambar rice and curd rice. As we are using chana dal, it takes more time to cook than snake gourd. So you can add previously cooked chana dal and add to poriyal or soak it for 30 minutes in water and add it as I did here. Other than this step, this pudalangai poriyal is so easy to make under 15 minutes. Also remember to add less water in pressure cooker else snake gourd turns mushy. Ok, lets see how to make snake gourd poriyal adding chana dal with step by step pictures.
