Patlukai Thambuli - Udupi recipe!

Patlukaai (ಪಟ್ಲುಕಾಯಿ)in Kannada and Pudalangaai (புடலங்காய்)in Tamil, thambuli is my son's favorite thambuli! This will taste a bit like our morekuzhambu (மோர்குழம்பு). We can have it with rice, chapaathis, dosai, adai etc. This is very easy to prepare. Now, the recipe:


  • 1 Snakegourd (around 200 gms.)
  • 2-3 Green chillies
  • 1/2 Cup grated coconut
  • 1/2 Cup normal curd (not sour curd)
  • Salt as per taste.

For garnishing:

  • 1 Tsp. Coconut oil
  • 1/2 Tsp. Mustard
  • Curry leaves


Cut the snake gourd into 2-3 pieces and pressure cook or cook directly till it is soft, with the green chillies and salt, in a cup of water. Let it cool. Grind it in a mixer (blender) with coconut. After it is soft, add curd. Blend for a second. Pour in a vessel. Add water till it is like dosa batter. If you want it still watery, you can add more water! Garnish! Finished!
