Ridge gourd gravy - Peerkangai kootu - Tasty side dish for rice or chapathi or roti or naan

I am very big fan of Ridge gourd. My mum does very nice kootu with it. I can mix in this kootu with steamed rice and have satisfying lunch. But my mum serve this as side dish with smabar , Rasam or curd rice. I love it because it is with peanut. Ridge gourd is high in nutrients value. If I am on a diet normally I do simple soup with it.  It is called Hirekayi in Karnataka, Dhodka-Gosavale in Marathi. Turai in Hindi.

7 cup cake - Seven Cup Cake - 7 cup burfi - Simple Deepavali recipe - Simple Diwali recipe - Simple Indian sweet recipe

My 1st son loves Mysore pak. In fact that is only Indian sweet he likes. Some time ago I had this sweet  at my friends house. And I was pretty confident my son would love it. But I kept postponing making it for one reason or other. Finally I got to it this time. This is simpler than Mysore pak and tasty too (of course less ghee than Mysore pak). Got the measurement from her. However I made some adjustment according to our family taste.
