Snake gourd/Pudalangai chutney

Wanted to try something different today so made this snake gourd chutney and it turned out very tasty, so posting the recipe :-)

Ingredients :
Snake gourd - 1 Medium size
Grated fresh coconut - 3 table spoon
Urad dhal - 1 table spoon
Tamarind paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Dry Red chilles - 4 or 5 (Depending on the spice you need)

Chopped Ginger - 1 table spoon
Salt - As per taste
Oil - 1 table spoon.

First cut the snake gourd into pieces and cook it. ( I normally cook veggies in microwave, so it took only five minutes to cook snake gourd). Heat oil in a pan fry urad dhal till golden brown colour, add red chilles fry for a minute and allow it to cool, in a blender add coconut, cooked snake gourd, tamarind paste, fried urad dhal and red chilles, salt , ginger and grind it to a coarse paste. Temper it with mustard seeds, curry leaves and asafoetida. Yummy snake gourd chutney is ready :-) Serve it with rice.
