My DH is very fond of Deep fried food, At least Pavakkai fry is a bit healthy!
The slight bitter taste along with the crispness makes it yum!
2 Nos Bitter gourd (slices - thin rounds)
1 Tbsp Red chilly powder
1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder
1 Tbsp corn flour
1 Tbsp rice flour
salt to taste
oil for frying.
Wash the bitter gourd and cut into thin rounds.
Remove the seeds.
Marinate with salt and let it stand for ten minutes.
Now squeeze the bitter gourd and drain the water.
Add red chilly powder, turmeric powder,corn flour and rice flour to the bitter gourd and mix , till it is nicely coated.(do not add salt)
Heat oil in a kadai and fry the bitter gourd.
You can also avoid using corn flour .
