Stir fried bottle gourd peel with potato and chow chow

stir fried bottle gourd with potato and chow chow
We GSB's eat  a lot of different vegetable peels which is tasty  and healthy too.So in my todays dish its not the bottle gourd but its peel is the main ingredient i am using along with some potato and some chow chow(simey badaney in kannada).
My mom used to prepare this dish at that time i remember she used to tell how to choose the gourd It should be  free from blemishes or dark spots and it should look soft and tender with shiny outer cover.So when we cook the peels it should melt in the mouth.
