Ridge gourd is loaded with vitamin C, riboflavin, zinc, thiamin, iron and magnesium. This vegetable is rich in dietary fiber, less in cholesterol and saturated fat. It is the best choice for anyone who wishes to weight loss quickly. It has the properties which helps in purifying the blood restore and nourish the liver. With the vegetable, we can make a variety of recipes like curry, chutney, and dal. We can make the best use of its skin also if it is tender enough to cook.
Check out recipes with ridge gourd and its skin here.
We can make this dal in two ways, one is pressure cook both dal and ridge gourd pieces together. Add tempering, salt and turmeric to it (The simplest way). Another one is, pressure cook dal separately. Cook ridge gourd pieces in tempering, along with salt and turmeric powder. Once the vegetable cooks, add cooked dal and mix it well. Both tastes almost the same, but the process is diferent. We can follow either way we are comfortable with. If I am not running out of time I prefer to follow the second procedure otherwise, obviously I have to choose the first way only.
