Peerkangai Rasavangi


Peerkangai Rasavangi
Ridge gourd is rich in beta carotene, dietary fibre, vitamin C, zinc, ribloflavin, iron and magnesium. This vegetable is called Beerakaya in telugu and Peerkangai in tamil. Ridge gourd Rasavangi recipe is prepared by cooking channa dal, moong dal and ridge gourd together. It can be served as a side dish to rice.The other ridge gourd recipes I prepare often are Ridgegourd Kootu as a side dish to Rice and Ridge gourd chutney - side dish to Idli and dosa. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Peerkangai Rasavangi.

  4. I see a few combo of lentils/dhall inside which made the dish very inviting, also the spices and perkangi rolled in more flavors inside.
