Ridgegourd Peels & Spring Onions Chutney

We know that everything in ridge gourd can be used as curries or chutneys..My mom usually used to prepare the ridge peels with sesame seeds or with grated coconut as chutneys, i tried to prepare this ridge gourd peels chutney this time with green spring onions along with dry red chillies, urad dal, tamarind and grated coconut, this chutney tastes terribly delicious with hot steaming idlies and crispy dosas for breakfast and along with spicy tangy gravies for lunch..We enjoyed having this mild green chutney with rice and onion & pepper kuzhambu today for our lunch..Both together turned out our lunch prefect, we loved it..Quick and delicious chutney goes awesome even with rotis..

Ridge gourd peel & Spring Onions Chutney

1cup Ridge gourd peels

4nos Dry red chillies
1no Tamarind (blueberry size)
1tbsp Urad dal
