Karunai kizangu varuval (Suran fry)

     I can still remember my mom cutting this odd shaped vegetable with her versatile aruva manai (no knives or cutting boards). As i said before my mom's a great cook, no one can resist her sambar accompanied with karunai kizangu fry. If she packs this dish for my school lunch there wouldn't be any thing left for me to eat. My friends would happily finish this. I cannot find fresh karunai kizangu here. So i'm settled for a frozen one.
suran fry
Karunai kizangu varuva
2 cups    kizangu/suran

Clean and cut the kizangu into small cubes. crush the garlic.
1. Combine all the ingredients except garlic and curry leaves with 2-3 tbsp of water.
