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.

  1. Dear Jeyashri,
    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I made it for the second time today (this time with red chilly powder though). Me and my mom love this. I am sure my MIL will also like it. This recipe is so quick and simple. Thanks once again.
