I came to know about this event through Priya guest hosted by Aruna Manikandan of Veggie Paradise . We all cook with corriander seeds and here’s my contribution to the event.

Snake gourd Rings

My husband dislikes almost all the greens. As I am incharge of the kitchen I never cook anything without atleast one green dish. So this is the only way Vasanth can accept Snake gourd in this house.

1 medium snake gourd
1 tsp corriander seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste
1 tbs oil


Grind corriander seeds,cumin seeds,fenugreek seeds after dry roasting.

How I made it:

Cut the snake gourd into rings by taking out the core individually.
Heat oil in nonstick pan and fry the rings
Add grinded powder and chilli powder,salt.

5 to 6 sweet baby corns

How to cut banana stem
