Potlakaya Pindimiriyam/Pindimiriyam

 I learned this recipe from my mother. We prepare this when we have special guests. Specially for those who don't eat onions. Preparation of this is very easy and it is a spicy soup dish goes well with rice. It will be in the semi solid consistency.


Potlakaya(Snake gourd)-1small
Tamarind Pulp-2cups(thick)
Red gram-2cups(boiled)
Salt-to taste
Turmeric Powder-1tsp
Asafoetida-a pinch
Pindimiriyam masala-11/2 cup

Procedure for pindimiriyam masala:

Coriander seeds-3tbsp
Black gram-2tbsp
Bengal gram-2tbsp
Black pepper seeds-2tbsp
Red chillies-3 or 4
Dry Coconut-3tbsp
Asafoetida-a pinch
Heat oil in a kadai. Add all the spices and roast all of them except dry coconut. Roast them till they turn brown. Keep them a side. 
Roast dry coconut separately till it also turns brown.

Make a fine paste of it.


Pressure cook red gram and mash it.

Cut potlakaya or snake gourd into half circles.
Pressure cook potlakaya/snake gourd for two whistles. 

Add tamarind pulp and water in it. Add cooked dal to it and mix well. Allow it to boil. Add salt and turmeric powder. Add 
pindimiriyam masala and mix well. 

Allow it to boil for 5 minutes. Drop a pinch of asafoetida while boiling. This will give a fine aroma to pindimiriyam. Now add tadka.
Tasty and spicy pinidimiriyam ready!!

Have it with hot rice and roasted or fried papad.
For tadka:
Heat 2tbsps of oil and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies and curry leaves. When they splutter add  this to the above pindimiriyam.
Note:We can prepare this with other vegetables like RawBanana, BitterGourd.
