garlic cloves-5 to 6(or more as per your like)

1.wash ivy gourds well and cut the tip and tail ends.

2.cut them vertically into 6 thin long strips..

leela, I make this dish often but instead of cutting the gourd I crush the whole gourd with a mortar. You need tender ivy gourd for this. TFS a tasty dish.
