We tend to forgo the vegetable peels most of the times neglecting their nutritional values which are at times higher than the actual vegetable. Ridge gourd is loaded with nutrients such as dietary fiber, vitamin C, zinc, thiamin, iron and magnesium and so is its peel. Comparatively the peel is richer in dietary fiber than the gourd itself. The Tangy & Spicy Ridge Gourd Peel Chutney is a spicy flavorful condiment for steamed rice or idli dosa and makes a delicious spread for the sandwiches too.
