Pudalangai Kadalai Paruppu Poriyal | Snakegourd Chana dal Stir Fry

Today was another simple lunch meal with seasonal vegetables used. We made mango rice along with snakegour poriyal and greens stir fry with moong dal. The snakegourd today is made with chana dal. Adding the dal makes this very healthy and I hardly added more a teaspoon of oil.

We make Snakegourd with different dals, one with moong dal tastes great as well.

Today's lunch was

That is one awesome thali. I usually make only two curries, stir fry and the other a gravy or rasam. Your thali is a feast to me which happens only when I have guests over. I have eaten snake gourd moong dal poriyal but not with chana dal. Looks good.

That is one filling and yummy looking thali Valli.
My mom makes all kinds of different curries with snake gourd, but I rarely buy it here since it is way too expensive. Adding dal makes it so much more nutritious and delicious.

whole platter looks amazing - snake gourd I tried once and wasnt a big fan - but maybe it was just that recipe - should try it again
