Ridge Gourd Chutney

Add caption
This is one of the usual chutneys I make at home.And this veggie tastes great in this form.These are the list of ingredients I used to make this recipe.

Ridge Gourd-2
mustard-1 tsp
urad dal-3 tbsp
a small piece of asafoetida.
chillies-2(u can modify to suit your taste)
1 or 2 tbsp -oil
Salt-to taste

Method-Splutter mustard seeds in oil.Add urad dal,asafoetida and red chillies.Fry it well. Urad dal is added for binding.Peel the skin off the gourd.Add chopped ridge gourd and salt to taste.I did not add water cause the vegetable's water oozes out.Fry it well for ten minutes till done. Allow the mixture to cool.Grind it coarsely in a blender.This chutney can be used as a side dish for idlis and dosas.You can also use it a as a dip for Khakhras.At home we mix it with white rice and have kootu as side dish.You can add a spoon of sesame oil to the white rice for enhanced taste. This is my submission for "Complete My Thali( CMT ) - Chutney" event.
