Panneer Stuffed Snake Gourd recipe

Well, I did not want to make the same usual stuff with the snake gourd that I'd got at hand and so decided to try and stuff it. I do remember seeing related recipes a very long time back but when I did google for "stuffed snake gourd" I was shocked to see that most of them were stuffed with meat or aloo. I decided to do it with panneer as I had in mind while returning from work.

I acted smart and made panneer burji. I made that in excess so that I could stuff the snake gourd with the same. It was scrumptuous.

Ingredients :

  1. Medium snake gourd - peeled and deseeded
  2. Enough panneer burji to stuff in
  3. Salt to rub onto the snake gourd
  4. 2 tbsp oil
How I made it :
  1. Rub salt onto the snake gourd and cook on high in microwave for 5 minutes or until 3/4th cooked.
  2. Fill it with panner burji
  3. Heat oil in a wide pan.
  4. Shallow fry the stuffed snake gourd pieces
Serve hot with rotis. Best had hot. As it cools, you may not like the taste of the oil - remember that shallow frying causes food to actually absorb/retain more oil.
