Ridge gourd is rich in enzyme catalyse so here’s few way of using it . Ridge gourd dal is easy to make in instant pot. I used Masoor dal but you can use any dal. You can also use yellow split pea. But if you are at Indian store trying to buy ridge gourd then might as well buy dal.
Ridge gourd peel yes peel also is edible. Generally ppl seem to remove some hard peel and then make curry out of it separately or make chutney. So I made chutney . And used it as a spread on sandwich .
Chutneys are good to eat in stead of all those sugar, salt rich sauces , ketchup.
