Ridge Gourd Prawns

Prawns and Ridge Gourd

This is a subtle combination of prawn and ridge gourd. The flavours of the core ingredients are the heroes. This dish uses very less oil and all the ingredients are cooked in their own juices, thus retaining their flavours. Cook the ridge gourd prawns yourself and decide.
