3. In a pan add little oil and add the snake gourd and salt and saute well.
4. It should be cooked and then add the moong dal.
5. Close the pan with a lid and let it cook.
6. After its half cooked add the chilli and coriander powder.
7. Mix well and add the cooked moong dal and let it cook for 5mins.
