First cut snake gourd into small pieces into a bowl and add salt. Mix well with fingers. Cover the bowl and keep it aside for 5 minutes. The snake gourd pieces absorb salt to become soft,as this vegetable requires very less salt compared to the normal vegetables. Hence put a bit less salt only. Water oozes from the vegetable. After 5 minutes press and separate water from the snake gourd pieces and take them into aseparate bowl. Heat a pan and add oil to it. When oil is hot add Bengal gram & black gram and channa dal and fry. Fry till the seeds start changing color. Then add mustard seeds and cumin seeds and fry till the seeds splutter. Now add red chilies and curry leaves & garlic cloves and fry well. Now add the turmeric powder and salt and add snake gourd pieces and mix well. No need to add extra salt as we have mixed the snake gourds and salt in the beginning. Fry for some time till dry.
