1. Wash and peel off the skin of snake gourd, and in a bowl take 3/4th of a cup finely chopped snake gourd.
2. beat the curd well and add it to the snack gourd
3. add required salt and mix well.
(do not add water, the veg itself will leave some water, still if that consistency is too thick, add a tea spoon of water to it)
4. If you like to temper, preheat oil in a tadka pan and add peanuts, mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves one by one.
5.Then add this mix to the raitha.
6.Before serving add a pinch of pepper and serve.
1.Tempering it is purely optional, But I suggest to temper it with peanuts, which will give you a crunchy bite.
2. A tea spoon of grated coconut can be added.If you like add it to raitha before tempering.
This suits well for chapathi and briyani
