Ridge Gourd (Peerangakai) Soup

This is something I saw sometime ago in TV show by Revathy shunmugam. I was bit surprised with the less ingredient used. When I first wanted to try this I was bit nervous on how this will turn out. To my surprise this is simple yet very flavourful soup. This recipe is a keeper for me.
