Paladya / mangalore cucumber paladya / mogekayi paladya

Paladya / mangalore cucumber paladya / mogekayi paladya is similar to ash gourd Majjige Huli / boodagumbala majjige huli. Difference is that paladya is from our part of Uttara Kannada while majjige huli is from Mangalore side. Both are very tasty havyaka recipes. Paladya is bit sweeter compared to majjige huli which is sourer. Majjige huli and paladya are like combination of tambli and huli and boiled too.
