Snake gourd core chutney



Some time back, I had shared a recipe of Snake gourd curry in my blog. I had mentioned then that the core could still be used in another recipe. We will be using the core to make a delicious chutney. Snake gourd core chutney tastes perfect eaten with rice with some coconut oil drizzled on top. You can also serve it with idli or dosas.
