Turai (Ridge Gourd) Dal | Turai Toor Dal Recipe | Dal Recipes

Turai dal, turai tuvar (arhar/toor) dal or ridge gourd dal/Peerkankai is easy and healthy dal recipe made with turai (ridge gourd) and toor dal and tempered with onion, tomato masala. This is one of the most delicious dal and great way to include ridge gourd in our diet or when you have less ridge gourd that dry sabzi can't be made then preparing dal with ridge-gourd (taroi) is great idea, one of the best comfort food.

This dal goes perfectly with steamed rice and add a dollop of ghee for satisfying meal doesn't require any more side dish just a salad, papad is enough or you can make simple aloo(potato), bhindi (okra) stir fry.


You can see turai dal is quite thick and it's taste good in this way but if you wish you can dilute the dal a bit add more water for it. We also make turai with chana dal and with arhar(toor) dal there are other version too which I shall try to post some times it's just that it's difficult to get tender ridge gourd here.
