I made the Beerakaya pappu day before yesterday and remembered that my Mom and Mil used to make the chutney out of the peeled skin of RIDGEGOURD. I tried my MIL's version and it turned out well. I served it with rasam yesterday and it was heavenly.The left over chutney was served again in dinner with Ven Pongal..thought my hubby would scream for serving the same thing in dinner too but to my surprise he was enjoying it with Pongal.So here goes the recipe of Beerakaya[telugu] | Peerkangai[tamil] | Turai[Hindi] |Ridgegourd[English] Chutney |Thuvaiyal.Hope u will like it.
