If you are throwing the ridgegourd peel, try this chutney once. It is very tasty. Along with this recipe I have also posted the ridgegourd dosa recipe. So you can try both dosa and chutney.

Ridge Gourd or Heerekayi is a highly fibrous vegetable, has many health benefits. It hels in blood purification, weight loss, maintaining the sugar level. Any vegetable peel will be having maximum nutrients. Prepareing chutney out of these peels is an easy and clever way of consuming them. Try this chutney, I am sure you will like it.

Extra tempering is optional for this chutney, because tempering is added during grinding. Still if you want to add extra tempering, temper it with 1tsp oil, 1/4 tsp mustard seeds and 1/2 red chilli.
