What is Ridge Gourd used in this Ridge Gourd Curry – Turai Dal Sabzi recipe?

Ridge gourd is a popular vegetable used in Indian cuisine. I would say it is  an acquired taste. It is a long vegetable with a dark green ridged skin and a white spongy flesh with soft seeds. The skin needs to be peeled before cooking.

How do I make Ridge Gourd Curry – Turai Dal Sabzi?

PREP –


Rinse and soak the dal in about 2 cups water for 30 minutes. Discard the water when you start cooking.

First, rinse and peel the ridge gourd. (I used 2 medium sized) Chop them to 1 inch cubes. Second, rinse and chop the serrano peppers finely. Third puree the tomatoes.

COOK –

Firstly, when you are ready to cook, in a large, heavy-bottom skillet/pot, heat ghee over high heat. Secondly, add in cumin seeds, mustard seeds, and cloves. Thirdly add in chopped onions and stir.

Further add in soaked dal and stir. Furthermore add in salt and stir again. Then add in fresh ginger, and serrano peppers and 1/4 cup water. Stir. Moreover add in ground turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, and ground ginger. Further add in tomatoes. Next add in chopped ridge gourd and stir. Further lower the heat and cover. The ridge gourd will release its own water. Cook the turai for about 25 to 30 minutes on low heat covered until it is soft and mushy. Finally top with cilantro.
