how to make Ridge Gourd Dal Recipe | Turai Dal Recipe | Beerakai Pappu Recipe

Turai ki dal or Beerakai pappu as called in Andhra, is one of my comfort food. Prepared with turai / ridge gourd, tomato and dal. I have used here both toor and masoor dal. My way to include variety lentils in a dish. You can add either toor dal or masoor dal. These dals which include vegetables are so wholesome, you don't need to make an extra side dish for rice, if you are feeling too lazy.
