Ivy Gourd Stir Fry

Ivy Gourd or Coccinia is popularly known as dondakaya in Telugu. I like this vegetable very much but cutting it to make curry takes very long time. It is liked by all only when we make stir fry. 
I prefer only stir fry but a stuffed with grated coconut or cooked with some light masala is also a good side dish for rice. 
We must select only thin and light green color ivy gourd. Fat and dark colored gourds are not good for stir frying.
