#Potlakaya Koora or Snake Gourd Vegetable

Let’s go the Andhra way today. For our BM#50 meet, I reached one day in advance with Viashali. Padma was waiting for us with this delicious Andhra Thali! Needless to say, I went crazy with the food that she had dished up.

I wanted to make it.

So I kept searching Padma’s blog for the recipe but could not find it. Finally, I email her and asked her for the recipe.

She was kind enough to send me the recipe. Padma this recipe was what helped complete my Andhra meal. What better way to share this recipe than the #Buffet on the Table!

I had also asked her for Nella Kharam recipe, yes when my thali was ready I expected it to get it ready with my Andhra Thali, but no  I suppose that will have to be another post.

Anyway please join us today in out Andhra Meal of #Potlakaya Koora or Snake Gourd Vegetable, #Palak Moong Dal and #Andhra Pachi Pulusu or Raw Tamarind Rasam with steamed rice of course!

    As Usha said, it has been a while since I cooked potlakaya at home. This is the basic go-to koora with this veggie.

    That is a simple and delicious snakegourd curryt. My mom never adds onion to snakegourd curry though — have to ask her if there’s a reason for that..
