ABOUT Ridge Gourd with Jowar-Wheat flour dumplings RECIPE

Ridge Gourd with Jowar-wheat flour dumplings is one of those authentic Maharashtrian recipes which you will not find easily on the internet or maybe even in cookbooks or any Hotel Menu. This rustic recipe passed on from one generation to another and is very close to my heart and palate, of course. Whoever thought of this fantastic combination of Ridge gourd and Dumplings was a genius! Ridge Gourd with Jowar-Wheat flour dumplings is a light meal in itself. You can also serve it with Bhakri or Rice.
