IVY GOURD FRY/ TENDLE TALASANI

I remember my Mom used to make this talasani with the seasoning of garlics. I love its aroma, it enhances the taste of the gourd. But here, at my place, my father in law never liked garlics, so my mom in law used mustards instead of garlics.  Here, in Kerala we get very big varieties of Ivy gourds and it lookd fat too, as this talasani  needed small varieties and very tender ones; so i cut it into 2 and prepared this. Do try friends...and enjoy ..:))
