         Ridge Gourd/Heerekayi Skin Chutney

We usually prepare Ridge Gourd Sambar, Ridge Gourd Palya/Sabzi and throw away the skin. Instead try this mouth watering chutney from Ridge Gourd skin. Most of the vitamins are found in the skin of the vegetables. If the ridge skin is soft and tender, just try this chutney.


Peeled skin Ridge Gourd/Heerekayi - 1 cup chopped

Urad dal: 2 tbsp

Grated coconut: 2 tbsp


Curry leaves: 1 strand

Tamarind juice: 1 tbsp

Jaggery: 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste

Green chillies: 2 medium sized

Oil: 1 tsp


1. Wash the ridge gourd skin and drain the water.

2. In a kadai add 1/4 tsp oil fry urad dal till it turns golden brown.  Add grated coconut and fry for a min. Transfer this to a plate.

3. Same kadai add 1/4 tsp oil add green chillies and ridge gourd skin fry for 5 - 8 mins until done. Mix it with step 2 ingredients and allow it to cool.


4. Add tamarind juice, jaggery, asafoetida and salt. Grind to a paste.

5. Prepare seasoning with mustard seeds and curry leaves, mix well with the chutney paste.

Ridge Gourd/Heerekayi chutney goes well with rice and also chapati.
