Long time since I cooked snake gourd... somehow I lost the charm for it. I like yours a lot, and would like to revive my liking for them.

Pavani, this is delicious. My mom makes this kootu green by grinding green chilly with coconut, jeera without adding chilly powder with same as ur seasonings. But, this is delicious looking. Will make it surely.
