ABOUT Ridge gourd peel Chutney RECIPE

We tend to forgo the vegetable peels most of the times neglecting their nutritional values which are at times higher than the actual vegetable .. Ridge gourd is loaded with nutrients such as dietary fibre, vitamin C , Riboflavin, zinc, thiamin, iron and magnesium..so is its peel . Comparitively its peel is richer in dietary fibre than the gourd. Ridge gourd peel chutney is a spicy flavorful condiment for rice, idli,dosa etc and makes a delicious spread for the sandwiches .
