Most of us detest bitter gourd but almost everyone likes them fried.These are just a different version of fried bitter gourd rings.Try them you'll love them.
My mom actually told me to try it this way even though i have tasted pavakka pakoda a few years ago from some chips' vendor i never tried it at home.These really turned out good and are a great side dish to any pulav or just plain sambar/rasam and rice.
Bitter gourd 2 medium
Besan/ kadala maav/gram flour 3 tablespoon
Rice flour 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Chilli powder 1 tsp
Chopped curry leaves 2 sprigs
Crushed garlic 2
Water to sprinkle and mix the above
Oil to deep fry
- Wash the bittergourds and cut them into thin rings.Place them in a large mixing bowl, now add the remaining ingredients.
- Sprinkle water little by litte so that the flours evenly coat the rings thinly.Let this rest for about half hour or more.
- Deep fry them and drain them onto kitchen towels.
- Serve hot with pulav and raita.
