Ridge Gourd Skin/Peel Chutney - Peerkangai thol chutney

Serves 3
I've become a big fan of chutneys lately and this is surprisingly a very tasty one . I didn't expect  the skin of a vegetable to taste so yum.It's very healthy with a lot of fiber in it.Most of the skins of vegetables have a lot of nutrients in them ,but we don't eat as they aren't exactly tasty.This one's definitely an exception.

Peel of one big Ridge gourd chopped finely - 1 cup
Grated Coconut or desiccated cconut - 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves - 10 -12 sprigs
Green Chilli - 1(optional)
Whole Red Chilli - 2
Urad dal - 2 tbsp
Sesame oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Tamarind - a tiny marble
salt - as needed

-To a pan add the oil, when it heats up add the mustard seeds and whole red chilli.
-Add the Urad dal and fry on low heat until slightly brown.Now add the chopped peel and saute till it looks cooked and withered,around 5-7 minutes.
-Add the coconut,green chilli and chopped coriander leaves and saute for another 3-4 minutes.
-Finally add the salt and tamarind and cook for a further 2 minutes.
-Remove from the stove,let it cool and grind to a fine paste,adding salt and a little water as needed.
