Heat  2 tea spoons of oil in a pan add green chillies  cumin seeds, curry leaves, garlic pods, tamarind fry for 1 minute and keep aside.
Now heat remaining oil in a pan and fry ridge gourd pieces till they turn in to brown.
Grind the above ingredients along with ridge gourd and ground nuts by adding salt in to coarse paste.
