Snake Gourd pulp Tambuli

Snake gourd is a vegetable  which is high water content, low in calories, fat free but filling and great to include in weight loss diets. Snake gourd also contains a lot of firber which can help to keep your digestive tract healthy. The firber is also helpful for those with diabetes. It is also a good source of minerals like magnesium, calcium and phosphorus.
Here I used Snake gourd pulp for Tambuli. Tumbuli is a side dish which keeps our body cool and healthy. Normally tumbuli is prepared with butter milk, fresh coconut and other spices and consumed or served in the beginning of the servings. We can have this tumbuli with rice, chapati, poori or toti too.
Things needed :
Snake gourd Pulp : 1 cup
Fresh coconut: 2 Table spoons
Pepper pods : 2 to 3
Jeera : 1/2 Tea spoon
Ghee : 1 Table spoon
Salt : as required
Green chilly : 1
Ingh : a pinch
Curd : 1 Cup
Mustard seeds : 1/4 Tea spoon
Red chilly: 1
Curry leaves : 4 to 5

1. Scoop out the tender pulp from the Snake gourd and boil or cook in pressure cooker for 6 to 8 minutes using little water, and green chilly and keep it aside to cool.
2. Now keep a pan on the fire and heat. Put ghee. Add jeera and pepper seeds Fry for 10 seconds. Put of the gas.
3. Now grind fresh coconut, fried jeera and pepper and cooked Snake gourd pulp. Use the water from the cooked pulp.
4. Add salt and ingh and grind and mix it well. Now remove the ground mixture from the jar and pour it to the  bowl.
5. Add curd and mix it thoroughly.
6. Now once again keep a pan on the fire. Add the remaining ghee. Put mustard seeds and red chilly. Let the mustard seeds spurt. Add curry leaves and put this spurt mixture to the ready tumbuli and serve with rice or chapati.

Note : You can fry snake gourd pulp while frying pepper and jeera. Fry until it gets tender. Cooking the pulp is good for health. You can also use butter milk instead of curd. Using butter milk is a healthy way but adding curd to the tumbuli taste best. Use less water while boiling.
Time : 15 minutes.
Serves : 2 to 3
