Ridge Gourd Peel Green Chilly Chutney

Ridge gourd green chilly chutney is spicy chutney. Ridge gourd is used in varieties of curries and the outer layer can be used for chutney/dip. It tasty yummy with plain rice, dosa, idli and any type of rotis.

I have used Ridge gourd pieces and its peel, green chilly and coconut.
This is one of the traditional dish done whenever we use ridge gourd. Ridge gourd peel also has the same healthy properties that the gourd contain.
Please remember to wash Ridge gourd nicely if you are buying from the market. Wash it nicely and then soak in salt water for at least 30 minutes and then wash it again before using it. It helps the
chemicals to wash off, which is used while growing Ridge gourd.
