Peerkangai Thuvayal is made from the skin of peerkangai (ridge gourd).It is easy to make and tasty...I usually make this thuvayal whenever I'm making ridge gourd curry.
1 cup skin of peerkangai(ridge gourd)
2 Green chilly
3 tsp Urad Dal
2 tsp grated coconut
2 Garlic Pods
2 tsp Oil
A small piece of Tamarind (more or less according to the taste)
1. Dry roast urad dal on low flame till it becomes golden brown.
2. Heat oil in a kadai/ Pan; add ridge gourd skin and saute for 5-7 minutes or till the raw smell goes.
3. Allow it to cool.
4. Grind together urad dal, ridge gourd skin, tamarind, grated coconut, salt, garlic cloves to a fine paste by sprinkling little water.
