Turai Dal chawar-Ridge gourd lentil meal is a simple tasty combo.Light on the stomach and easy to digest.This curry is an easy combination of mixing veggies with lentils.This Sindhi recipe is made with Chana dal,which is very similar to Gujarati recipe made with moong dal /Turia mag ni dal.Add a dash of lemon, when you serve.It will help increase the taste and also let you absorb your iron in the meal.You can eat it for lunch or dinner anytime.Ridge gourd aids weight-loss.I love pairing it with roti or brown rice.You can also use bottle gourd or ivy gourd for a similar curry if you do not have turai handy.
Of course if you love dairy,you can add a hint of ghee else temper with sunflower oil for a vegan meal.'Chana Dal' or yellow split lentils gives a great base to ridge gourd.Thus,it is an ideal combination of lentils and veggies.You can eat with both a flat bread or with rice.Serve it with some chunda,fried poppadums and fresh salad.

Turai recipes/Turiya vegetable/Dodka are very easy on stomach.Whether you make it nijji (making only in ghee,black pepper and jeera tempering) or just in some onion tomato gravy.It tastes great with both rice and roti.
Tip: When you peel and cut your gourd.Always taste a small piece. If it is bitter, the whole curry will turn bitter.No amount of spices can then save that curry.
