Ridge Gourd Peel Chutney

Ridge Gourd Peel Chutney


I am sure most of you know how to prepare ridge gourd or it's peel chutney and I never thought of posting the same.  Recently me and my friend cum neighbour went for vegetable shopping and when I got myself a soft, fresh ridge gourd and asked her if want to buy it too ..she said she doesn't know what to cook with that ...I was like you can do so many things and also make chutney with the peel..she told me she heard about it but doesn't know the recipe and then I thought I should post it for her and other people whom don't know how to make this yummy but simple chutney.  


Ingredients:

Ridge Gourd Peel - 1 cup or of one ridge gourd
Cilantro - 1/2 cup  [you can just few stalks too]
Coconut - 1 tbsp [optional]
Garlic - 1 tbsp [chopped]
Green Chilli - 3 [according to spice level]
Tamarind - a small pebble size
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Water

Method:

1. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and let it crack.  Add urad dal, garlic and green chill, once dal becomes golden brown add ridge gourd peel and sauté for 2-3 minutes, off the flame and allow everything to cool.

2. In a mixer or blender add rest of ingredients with the sauté items and grind into smooth paste, add little water if required.

Simple and delicious chutney is ready.  If you wish top up the chutney with mustard seeds tempering.  This chutney stays for 2-3 days if store in air tight container and refrigerate.  But if you add more of coconut then it's better to consume on same day. 

This chutney does well with dosa, bread, roti or rice.  I can eat this with anything :).


And this goes to Ayeesha of Taste of Pearl City Any One Can Cook:Series 19 ...what a coincident ...just y'day I saw the movie Ratatouille again ..

Have a good day ~~

  8. Hey Priti, my mumma said that the flavour of chutney becomes double when it is made on the Sil batana(equipment of rock to make paste).Is it true?? or just a myth. By the way i love your chutney and really wanna try in my home.Hope my hubby appreciate it..

  9. Thank You ladies...:)

    @Webdework ...Your mom is 100% right dear....any chutney or masala made in sil bata (tht's what we call it) always taste different and very good. But now a days everyone goes for short cut way and having Mixi is such wonderful bliss.

    My mom always make all the masla ie making onion n garam masla paste in sil bata only including all the chutnies...she only used Mixi for heavy grinding!!

    I used do too @my place when was a kid ...now I don't have sil bata here with me ..though sometime I think of getting one ...but then I know I will hardly use it ...
    Once I used sil bata to crush & make puree of palak for palak panner ...that's some task I did ...but tht was just after my wedding ;)
    The bottom line is ...if you can then pls use sil batana ..you can see the taste will be different ..use sil batan for crushing or making masala, chutney etc.
