Beerakaya Thokku pachadi, Ridge Gourd peel chutney, Peerkangai chutney

Today's recipe is Beerakaya Thokku pachadi with combination of  fresh coconut and daniya( coriander seeds). I heard about this recipe many times but never tried, thinking of taste. But after tasting, it  became my favourite chutney. I use to prepare this chutney when ever i do ridge gourd curries. It's very easy and simple to prepare. Ridge gourd peel contains fibre which is important to our body. You can also prepare ridge gourd chutney's  in combination of tomatoes and groundnuts also . Will be posting all  ridge gourd chutney varities soon.Check out my Beerakaya palu posina koora, Ridge gourd with milk curry
