  • 1 kg - Bitter gourd
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 tbsp - oil
  • 2 tsp - cumin powder.
  • 4 tsp - chilli powder
  • 1 tsp - Turmeric powder
  • How to Make Quick Fried Bitter Gourd:

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