Ivy Gourd is a very nutritious vegetable. It has lots of medicinal properties. But like many even I do not like this much. But if you give it to me in disguise I do not mind eating it. Same way I would love to make it into this yummy chutney and have it. Mix this Ivy Gourd Chutney | Peerkangai Chutney with some sour curd and add some roasted gram and spread it on dosa you can have 100s. Such a tasty dish it is.
