Peechinga Parippu (ridge Gourd Lentil Curry)
Ridge gourd is one of my favourite recipe. In fact, I love all gourds. I am a firm believer of gourds and their impact on the tummy soothing. This curry takes many avatars in my kitchen. I add some chettinad paste to this curry when I wish to spice it up, or add some rasam powder when I want to dilute it and have a rasam feel. But this is a simple version with coconut paste gravy. As I have mentioned in my previous entries my life now revolves around easy recipes that can be had by my daughter and us. She loves vegetables and it would amaze you to watch her pick veggies and eat them.
