This is a very traditional recipe ..As always nothing is wasted .& so is the skin of ghosale / ridge gourd .this makes an excellent side dish .there are two recipes for this ! I like the bright green one & so do it often ..choose whichever suits your taste !
- Ghosalle skins – 1 cup ( take thick peels of the ridges . clean & cut int small pieces )
- Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
- Jeera – 1 tsp .
- Tamarnd – a small piece
- Green chillies 2-3 as per taste
- salt to taste
- Grind all ingredients listed above to a smooth paste using very little water .
- you can saute the skins & then grind too but I like it raw .
