Last year we planted ridge gourd in our backyard and we got soooo many of them...and don't know how to use them all...We began preparing this chutney from then...Homegrown gourds are sweeter and tastier than the store bought ones for sure...We use to prepare chutney from the skin(peerkangai thol)of the gourd too...will post that soon...Until then Prepare this healthy and tasty chutney and enjoy..Goes well with both idli and dosa...
|Peerkangai/Ridge Gourd||quarter gourd|
|Urad dal||1 1/2 tblsp|
|Dry red Chillies||1 or 2|
