CAUTION:  Non Indians should take care of while taking amount of red chili or green chili , here i'm writing according to my own taste , you may require less spicy than what i wrote here . So that you will enjoy the recipe . In India we use more masala and chili powder so please use less amount of spices if you are non -indian. Even in case of oil , i'm using an average  , you can use more or less to it

Method :

1) Wash moong dal with fresh water and soak for 5min .

2) Remove skin of ridge gourd (peal out skin) and cut them into small pieces (while cutting taste one piece where it is good or not , some times it may have bitter taste that will spoil your original taste of recipe , avoid them from making recipe ) . Wash them with fresh water .

3) Heat oil in a pan  , add mustard seeds  chopped onion , add little salt , cook them for a while then add ginger garlic paste , curry leaves  .

4) After a small break add ridge gourd , turmeric , red chili powder  mix them very well and keep a lid on it for 2 min .

5) Now add moong dal , salt , coriander powder , cook it for 5 mins (no need to add extra water , water comes out from ridge gourd it is more than enough to cook it finely)
