Ghee Roast and Ridge Gourd Chutney

For blog hop i visited Divya's  blog  DIVYASCOOKBOOK  last week and Jayshri's blog  SAMAYALARAI  this  week and enjoyed reading through their posts. When i saw how to prepare the restaurant style rocket shaped ghee roast i knew what i wanted to try  from divya's collection and then came across the ridge gourd chutney in jayshri's collection thought it would be a wonderful combo with the dosa and every one at home loved it with dosa and even rice.
In the picture chutneys are tomato (red colored) , coconut (white colored), ridge gourd( light brown colored) , chutney podi ( drak brown colored).
