Wash and peel the ridge gourd roughly to remove the sharp ridges. You need not peel the skin completely.
Then cut the ridge gourd into thin round slices.
Grease a tawa and heat it. When it gets hot, dip each ridge gourd pieces into the batter and place them on hot tawa adjacent to each other to form a dosa / round shape.You could pour some batter to fill the gaps in between the pieces.Drizzle few drops of oil and cook it on low flame with a lid covered.
When the bottom gets cooked ie turns brown, flip it and cook other side.Drizzle some more oil.When done remove from tawa.
