Snake Guard Curry

When I delivered my twin girls, my MIL, used to give me snake guard everyday saying it will increase milk for new moms. I somehow liked her way of making this curry. Here is the recipe

  1. Snake Guard - 1 cup (chopped into small pieces)
  2. Onion - 3/4 cup (finely chopped)
  3. Oil - 1 tsp
  4. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  5. Urad dhall - 1/4 tsp
  6. Green chillies - 1(acc to taste)
  7. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Coconut - 2 tsp
Take a pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dhall, asafoetida powder and green chillies and saute till it becomes golden brown. Now add chopped onion and fry it is 1/2 cooked. Add chopped snake guard and sprinkle water required for it. Since snake guard requires less amount of water, just sprinkling of water whenever necessary is enough. Stir it occasionally. When snake becomes tender and fully cooked turn off the stove and sprinkle the coconut on top of it. Serve it hot with rice.
