I do the other way in ridge gourd (only) chutney, like remove the skin as much as possible, but keep the spongy part with the seeds?
What difference does it make - if its mine or your way? any idea?
Copied the recipe, @kkrish, shall try it out soon in the traditional way.
Telepathy at its best
Thank you @msm .
I dont know what difference, however, I've been told that the skin is full of nutrients; so I try to keep as much skin as possible.
Thank you @GeetaKashyap . Hope you like it.

Thanks to JAG for that wonderful recipe and here is the photograph of very tasty Chakka Pradaman I have made. My wife and MIL are very happy.
Hope you don't mind me butting in!
As you said, the nutritional aspect is the main thing. Apart from that, ridge gourd skin is a little hard. What I have noticed is that when it is used, it adds a bite and a slightly grainy texture to the curry or the chutney which many people (incl. me) enjoy. Perhaps this texture and the experience makes all the difference.
Since I don't use the Instant Pot, I miss contributing here. But you guys are showcasing so many recipes and that's great!
Tried @justanothergirl s tomato pickle recipe in IP. Thanks. Turned out good
