I have never tried molagootal with zuchini. But after visiting our relative's place, I wanted to try this time with zuchini. It came out really well and tasted good. Here is the recipe for molagootal.

  2. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  3. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  4. Red chillies - 1
  5. curry leaves - few

Take a pan, put zuchini, snake gourd, add required amount of water, turmeric powder, salt and let it cook for 7 to 10 mts. In the mean time, grind coconut, green chillies and cumin seeds to fine paste and keep it aside. Do not over cook the vegetable.
