Here is the recipe for it---------------------

Now place a pan on the stove on medium high heat and all the seasoning ingrdients to it except turmeric and salt.

Once the seasoning is done add the cooked snakegourd pieces to the pan along with turmeric and salt and mix well.Cook for a minute till all the ingredients blend well and switch off the stove.

Note :
---------
1) If fresh SnakeGourd is available,always use the fresh one.

2) You can skip adding green chillies.

3) If you do not like to cook the veggies in microwave,you can always cook them on the stove top or pressure cook too.

4) Adding yogurt to the warm ingredients gives a little sourness to the chutney.If you do not like the mild sourness,add beaten yogurt when the ingredients cool down.
