Ridge Gourd Chutney Recipe

Ridge Gourd chutney

Offbeat thats the word for this one. Unique chutney made from an equally unique and unconventional ridge gourd. The chutney is neither sweet or sour nor it is tangy. It has a distinct taste of its own and goes really well with rice or chappatis.

Ridge gourd – 250 gms (pic for reference at the bottom of the page)

Tamarind – 1 marble sized (Soak in water and extract the pulp)

Mustard – 1 tsp

Chana dal (gram dal) – 1 tsp

Urad dal (white) – 1 tsp

Dried red chili – 6 nos

Asafoetida – 1 pinch

Coriander leaves – 1/2 cup

Oil – 1/4 cup

Salt to taste

  1. Shave off the ridges roughly and cut into small cubes
  2. In a medium sized wok heat oil, add mustard and let it splutter
  3. Now add asafoetida, both the dals and fry till golden brown
  4. Fry red chilies separately and add the cubed ridge gourd and stir. Saute till soft and add it to the wok
  5. Add the tamarind pulp, coriander, salt and grind it to smooth paste
  6. Your ridge gourd chutney is ready to serve!
