 My husband is very fond of snakegourd upkari, so once in a week i prepare this . With the seeds I prepare  very spicy pan cakes...a side dish for lunch.  Tastes good. But my children hate both the preparations that i made .Actually I  also got fed up preparing the same spicy pancake every week. This time
I thought that somehow i will make them eat this. and  they had it...they did not even feel that I'd added it.
Veg cutlet: main ingredient is PODDALE BEE.( seeds of snake gourd). and also added cauliflower,carrot and onion...:))

 1. Poddale bee (snake gourd seeds)1 cup
2. Cauliflower florets cubed 1 cup
3. Carrot ..cut into small cubes half cup
4. Boiled potato 1 small
5. Ginger and garlic
6. Green chiliies 3
7. Onion 1 big
8. Garam masla 1 tspn
9. Salt to taste
10. Bread slices 4 ..for crumbs

Method : make a smooth paste of onion … and make paste of ginger, garlic and chillies . crush the poddale bee ( don’t make a paste) in a mixie.
In a non stick kadahi fry onion paste in a lil oil . add garlic ginger and green chilli paste into it and fry for a while. Then add crushed poddale bees and cook for few mins. Add garam masla also. Remove this mixture into a bowl.
