Snake Gourd Curry

In today’s share there will be an option to try snake gourd, which tastes kind of like green bean and squash.  Here’s an idea for a recipe to cook it, which we like!  This recipe is based off this Vahchef recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 snake gourds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • chili powder to taste
  • 1 T ghee (or oil of choice)
  • salt to taste
  • yogurt (we used a non-dairy coconut-based yogurt)

Cut snake gourd into roughly 1/2” or smaller round slices.  Heat pan with ghee and add mustard and cumin seeds once pan is hot.  Saute seeds for about a minute and then add turmeric, chili powder, and salt.  Stir to mix and then add snake gourd.  Cook about 15-20 minutes on medium heat or until tender.  Turn off heat then add yogurt and mix.  Ready to eat!
