ABOUT Beerakaya Thoku pachadi RECIPE

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
