The mild flavor of Ridge Gourd makes this curry tasty with plain rice too!
Ridge Gourd masala curry is a spicy North Indian gravy curry that tastes delicious with roti and rice. I always like to make some subji for Roti as it has healthy veggies in it. I recently got fresh Ridge gourd from shop and usually I make Ridge Gourd Thogayal or Ridge Gourd Stew . But this time, instead of the routine recipes, I used Ridge Gourd and toor dal to make this delicious Masala Curry (Subji) and it tastes awesome with Roti and even with Rice.
Most of us have difficulty to make our kids eat veggies. Especially green veggies like snake gourd, ridge gourd etc, They always love to have Paneer Masala or plain dal for Roti. Always using paneer is kind of boring for adults and also to make kids eat veggies, we should try to make subji like this Ridge Gourd Masala Curry. Here along with Ridge Gourd we are also using Toor dal which is packed with proteins and enhances the whole recipe.
Along with Toor dal and Ridge Gourd, our Indian Spices adds more flavor. This Ridge Gourd Masala | Turai Ki Sabji is a quick, easy to make Subji. Try this delicious subji and share your comments!
