Ridge Gourd Chutney/Peerkangai Thogayal

Pin It Now!
One of my favorites is this flavorful and easy to make spicy chutney using Ridge Gourd Peels.This vegetable is also known as Chinese Okra.The outer layer of this vegetable which is not soft, is edible and gives this chutney a natural coarse consistency.It goes well mixed with plain rice or as an accompaniment to dosas and idlis.

Ingredients - Serves 3
2 cups Ridge Gourd Skin-Peeled
5 Cloves Garlic
1 inch piece ginger-both Width and Length
10 Red Dry Chilli Peppers
Tamarind - Marble size - Adjust to the heat of the peppers
1-2 tbsp Oil

1/2 tsp Mustard and Cumin Seeds Each
Curry Leaves Few Sprigs
1-2 tbsp Oil

In a pan heat oil,add garlic,sliced ginger,red dry peppers,then add peeled chopped gourd skin.When roasted,add salt,tamarind and allow to cool.Add some water and blend to a coarse consistency in a blender or mixer.Heat oil in a pan and add mustard,cumin seeds and curry leaves for seasoning.Transfer to a bowl add the chutney and mix to blend well.Enjoy with plain rice or as an accompaniment to dosas, idlis or bread- however you like it.

For thogayals add the ground chutney to the seasoning in the pan and stir cook till the liquid is absorbed and a thicker consistency is achieved.
