Ridge gourd poriyal


                This is very simple yet tasty dish with few ingredients. Mom use to add tomatoes to this. But this recipe is more yummy than adding tomatoes.


  • Ridge gourd (long variety) - 4
  • Onion - 2
  • Sambar powder - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Mustard and urad dal - 1 tsp
  • Oil as required


  • Scrap the outer skin and chop the vegetable into small cubes.
  • Heat oil to the pan on medium flame. Splutter mustard and urad dal.
  • Add curry leaves and onions. Fry till onion becomes translucent.
  • Now add the vegetable, salt and sambhar powder. Fry for a minute. No need to add water.
  • Cover and cook it on low flame. The vegetable will ooze out water.
  • Stir often till the vegetable in done and becomes dry. Serve it with rice.

Tips for the recipe - You can either slightly or completely scrap the outer skin of the vegetable.
Both taste good. Here I scraped it out completely. You can use it for chutney.
