I have one more Mangalore special chutney recipe which will keep your fingers on your nose. 

We usually peel off the skin of Mangalore Cucumber and throw it away as a waste. Never do that :). Every part of a vegetable is worth to be eaten. 

Now take the recipe:

All you require is 
  • Peeled Skin of Mangalore Cucumber
  • Urad dal
  • Curry Leaves
  • Red Chilli
  • Grated coconut
  • Tamarind
  • Salt to taste
  • Methi

This tastes the best with rice. Add few drops of  coconut oil to rice with this chutney. You can also serve it with dosa’s and chapattis.

The same chutney can also be prepared using the skin of  Pumpkin, Ash gourd and cucumber. 

The skin of vegetables which  usually enters dustbin, can be made into tasty chutneys. Try this and get back to me with its taste. 

Till then stay happy!
