Peerkangai (Ridge Gourd)Thogayal

Peerkangai Thogayal/Ridge gourd chutney is a south Indian side dish that pairs very well with steamed rice and rasam. Ridge gourd can be prepared in various ways, in the form of curries, as an addition to sambar, but I like it best as a thick creamy thogayal. Here the skin of the ridge gourd is used which has lots of nutritional benefits in it. This goes well with rice, idli and dosa.
