Ghosale shire chutney/Ridge gourd peel/peechinga tholi chutney

This is a one of my favourite chutney.   I love to eat this with  hot steaming boiled rice, no need of any other  curry.   My grand mom used to prepare this best.  In my childhood  days  during vacation time all kids have to  eat pajje jovan(Kanji/rice soup) at 10.00 am as brunch.  It was like a tradition and all the members present at that time used to do it.

I think nowadays no one knows about this or eat this.  For  pajje jovan side dishes would be chutneys and upkaris  like vegetable peel chutney’s, vegetable  peel upkari(stir fry)  and different types of pickles.

It was  really fun to sit together in a row  or circle on the floor and  along with gossips and jokes  we used to relish our Pajje Jovan.

Really missing  those days :(  At least for once u have to  try this,  sure u will  like it J
