Snake gourd or Pathola as we call is a common vegetable in Sri Lanka and some Asian countries but not all over the world. When we were sick we knew that we are going to get this curry for sure to it health benefits. As this is a low calorie vegetable it helps to digest food and helped to reduce the dehydration.
When you cook this with thick coconut milk it gives a nice creaminess to this curry. Normally snake gourd is cooked as a white curry.
