Ingredients

How to Make

  • Wash the bitter gourds, cut and scrape out the seeds inside.
  • Slice into thin slices.
  • Soak the slices in salt water and a pinch of turmeric for about 2 hours. This would remove a lot of its bitterness off.
  • Drain and squeeze out the excess water.
  • Mix with the chilli powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, and salt.
  • Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the bitter gourd slices till golden brown and crisp. Serve with ketchup.
  • This tastes best with curd rice.
