Ridge Gourd is mainly used by me for making Thuvaiyal. In Singapore we get very long Ridge gourd and seeing the richness we are tempted to buy it . Ridge Gourd Thuvaiyal ca be added to rice or as as side dsih for Idly, Dosai.
Ridge Gourd -1
Red Chilli -2
Urad dal -1 tsp
Channa dal -1 tsp
Hing – ½ tsp
Coconut – 2tsp
Tamarind – a small pebble size
Wash the Ridge Gourd. Cut both ends . Trim off the ridges only and not the skin. Cut the vegetable into small piece. Heat oil in a kadai and fry the dals and chilli well and keep aside.
Next fry the Ridge gourd in slow flame . The water will ooze out and the Ridge gourd will be cooked well in this .
When cooked and cool grind Ridge gourd, dals, chilli, tamarind, salt and coconut together . If needed add little water . Serve with hot rice and ghee.
