Snake gourd / padwal dal is a yummy dish best eaten with rice topped with some ghee.
Usually snake gourd is not eaten in most homes the reason being many cooks think this vegetable is not so tasty, but if you ask me there are some wonderful snake gourd recipes which are so simple to make and they taste wonderful. 
If you have never tasted padwal /parwal before try making this dish, I'm sure you will love it.

1/2 tsp hing
1/2 a lemon squeezed
coriander leaves to garnish in the end
1/2 cup masoor dal (split orange lentil)
