Poddalen Sanna polo

Description :

As in my previous recipe Poddalen upkari , I had kept the seeds of poddalen to make another side dish which is Poddalen Sanna polo. Poddalen as you know is snake gourd in English and Padwal kai in kannada. Sanna polo in konkani means a small dosa made with some vegetables in a spiced, coarse rice and coconut paste.


1 cup of Poddalen bee(Snake gourd seeds),

2 cups of  rice  soaked for 1 hour,
6 fried Byadgi red chilles,
half cup of scraped coconut,
a pinch of hing,
an inch of tamarind ,
Salt to taste.
  • Fry red chilles in a teaspoon of oil, add hing ,tamarind and coconut .Fry this for a minute.Let it cool.
  • In a mixer add the above mixture and pake a fine paste.To this add soaked rice and salt to taste. Make a thick paste(Dont add too much water).
  • Empty the contents of the mixer into a bowl , add crushed Poddalen bee(Snake gourd seeds) Mix well.
  • Medium heat a dosa or chapathi tawa . Take 2 teaspoon of the above mixture and spread it to form a circular shape.
  • Sprinkle some cooking oil. Close the tawa with a lid and simmer for 2 minutes. See to it that both sides are cooked.
Serve as it is or along with rice and daalithoy/Saaru
