I like to add ridge gourd either in sambar or in any kothsu varieties. But Chutneys with ridge gourd are always tasty. This ridge gourd mint chutney will be delicious with crisp doas.

Chopped ridge gourd- 3 cups
Mint leaves- a handful
Shredded coconut- half cup
Red chillies-6
Tamarind- a small lime size
Salt to taste
Oil- 3 tbsp


Fry the vegetable along with the mint in the oil until the ridge gourd becomes soft.
Add the red chillies and the coconut and fry for a few minutes.
When cooled, grind them with the tamarind and salt to a coarse paste.
The delicious ridge gourd mint chutney is ready to serve!!
