Peerkangai Masiyal/Ridgegourd Masiyal


This is a recipe of Menurani Chellam who is very popular in Tamil cuisine.
I like the way she explains in detail all the recipes.She is an expert even  in International cooking.She hosts the show called Arusuvai Neram.This was featured in an episode.

Ingredients:


Ridge gourd - 4

Boiled toor dal - 1 cup

Green chillies - 4

Ginger - 2 tsp grated

Lemon - 1

Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

Sal to taste

Oil - 1 tbsp

Method:


Wash,peel and cut the ridge gourd into 1 inch pieces.Cook them in a pan filled with water to which little bit of salt and turmeric powder is added.

In a pan,mix the cooked toor dal and ridge gourd,required amount of salt and 1/2 cup of water.Allow it to boil for 3 minutes.

In another pan heat the oil.Add mustard seeds.When it splutters,add the green chillies and ginger.Transfer them to the ridge gourd.Extract the juice of a lemon and mix with the masiyal.

Serve with rice.
