How to peel Ridge Gourd:
First thing would be to buy a tender Ridge gourd. While buying try twisting softly and not very hard as it might break. When the vegetable is soft and pale green you know the vegetable is still tender.
Ridge gourd peel - 3/4 cup
Ridge gourd pieces - handful
Bengal Gram / Channa dal - 2 tsp
Urad dal / Black gram dal - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - 10
Coriander leaves - handful
Dry Red chillis - 3 -4
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 - 2 tsp
Garlic - 1 big
How to make Ridge Gourd Skin Chutney
In a non stick pan, heat oil, add the peels, curry leaves, coriander leaves, lentils, ridge gourd pieces, garlic along with salt and dry red chillis. Simmer and saute till the ingredients are well done.
Allow to cool, add enough water to make a semi coarse paste.
Serve with dal and rice as a side dish.
There is no need to do tempering for this. Add as little water as required.
