Ridge Gourd Chutney

             Ridge gourd chutney is very easy and quick chutney, this goes well with all kind of tiffen varieties like Idly/dosa/Rav dosa/Pongal/Chapthi and even with plain rice also. This is one of my fav chutney but i never tried with its peel, as here we couldn't get that much fresh ridge gourds :(  now to this simple recipe...
