Eat your Greens: Luffa

Luffa or Ridged Gourd called Tori or Turai in Hindi is very similar to zucchini.
Remove the ridge with a potato peeler and thick slice the Tori.
With the removed ridge South Indian people make a dry chutney.

Sauté the sliced luffa in your preferred vegetable oil and when half cooked add minced ginger/garlic/green chili, and a pinch of amchoor [powder of unripe green mangoes]. Squeeze some lime/lemon at the end.
