RIDGE GOURD THOGAIYAL
(Peerkangai Thogaiyal)
Ridge gourd thogayal, peerkangai thogayal a perfect thogayal recipe to pair with rice, dosa and also on bread.
Thogaiyals are very handy and i almost make this on weekends and my family loves this the most, especially my daughter is a big fan of thogaiyal. Always i make Thengai thogaiyal or Parrupu thogaiyal, but this thogaiyal i suddenly remembered and asked my mom for the exact recipe. We all enjoyed this with rice along with oven roasted papad.
INGREDIENTS:

RIDGE GOURD 1 NO
URAD DHAL 3 TBLSP
RED CHILLI 4-5NO
TAMARIND A SMALL PIECE
ASAFOETIDA 1/4 TSP
SALT AS NEEDED
COCONUT SCRAPPED 1 TSP(OPTIONAL)

ridge gourd chutney

peel chop
  • In a kadai, add oil and throw in the urad dhal, redchillies, tamarind and asafoetida.
  • Fry till it turns gold in colour.
  • Keep it aside.

fry dal

  • In the same kadai, add the roughly chopped ridgegourd pieces and saute till it becomes soft and cooked nicely.
raw cooked
  • Allow it to cool
  • First grind the dal and  redchilli mixture along with the coconut(if using) .
  • Then finally add the ridge gourd and grind it to a smooth paste.
  • Don not add any water,as the ridge gourd will ooze out water.
    grind dal and red chilli grind with ridge gourd

thogaiyal

  • Normally we mix thogaiyal with hot rice with sesame oil mixed to it.
  • We can use this as a side dish for idli/ dosa.
  • I personally love to spread this on bread .
