Bitter Gourd fry / Pavvakai fry


Bitter gourd is my favorite vegetable from my childhood...This is a simple dish in which bitter gourd  is marinated with salt and spices and then fried. It is served with rice and sambar / rasam...Because of its bitter taste many of us don’t cook this vegetable often. But when you soak it in tamarind water or salt , you can reduce the bitterness to a certain extent....


Ingredients :


Bitter Gourd / Pavakkai
3
Rice Flour
2 tbsp
Gram Flour
2 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder
1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder
1 tsp
Salt
As needed
Oil
3 tbsp


Steps:


  • Wash and remove both the tapering ends of the bitter gourd. Slice as thin as possible, soak it in salt water for 5 mins. Squeeze excess water and set aside..
  • Mix rice,gram flours, turmeric, red chilli powder,salt with the sliced bitter gourds. Sprinkle water and mix evenly. Do not add more water and set aside for 10 mins.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add marinated bitter gourd and fry until brown and crisp. Drain it in paper towel.
  • Serve with hot with rice...
