Peerkangai thogayal/Ridge gourd chutney – SUPER DUPER KITCHEN

Peerkangai thogayal/Ridge gourd chutney

Ridge gourd or peerkangai is a vegetable with high water content and rich in Vitamin C. It is low in saturated fat, cholesterol and high in dietery fibre.  I saw this vegetable for the first time after my wedding.  But didnt know what to do with it until my mom came to look after me when I was unwell.  From that time, I have started using this vegetable regularly in my kitchen. My husband too loves this thogayal a lot and if I forget to make this ,he ll ask himself and I make it.
