Peerkangai Thol Thogayal / Ridge gourd skin Chutney/ Peerkangai Thol Chutney

Peerkangai Thol thuvayal / chutney is a chutney we started to prepare, when there were lots of ridge gourds growing in our backyard, since we know for sure there are no insecticides or pesticides in the skin of the veggie...and they tasted great...Many prepare using urad dal only or channa dal only...but we like this combo of toor dal and urad dal better...very healthy way to include fiber in diet.. and taste wise also no compromise..It tastes awesome...Do try and you will surely like it...


Urad dal2 tsp
Toor dal2 tsp
Red chilli1 or 2
Ridge gourd skin1/2 cup
saltas needed
To Temper

Mustard1/2 tsp
Urad dal1/2 tsp
Curry leaves1 sprig
Oil1 tsp


Heat little oil in a small pan and roast urad dal, toor dal and red chillies till golden brown...Remove from pan and let it cool..

In the same pan, add the skin of ridge gourd..don't use the skin from end part of veggie..Saute for 3 to 4 minutes..

Add coconut slices,salt and grind everything as a smooth chutney...Temper with mustard, urad dal and curry leaves...(tempering is optional..not needed if using as side dish for rice..)
