Bitter gourd fry/ fritters/ pavakkai fry

   My friend's mom shared this recipe a few weeks ago. The bitter taste of karela is reduced as we deep fry the vegetable and the crispiness leaves you craving for more. This is definitely one of the easy and simple recipes. This can be a used as a snack or as a side dish for rice varieties.

1 Bitter gourd
oil for deep frying
1 tsp of red chilli powder
1 tbsp of besan/ gram flour/chick pea flour
1/2 tbsp of rice flour
salt as required


1.Slice the bitter gourd into 1/2 inch circles.  Add besan, rice flour, red chilli powder and salt to the bitter gourd.
2. Add a tsp of oil and mix well. Preheat the oil in the heavy bottomed vessel ,add the pieces to the pan. Deep fry both the sides till it turns golden brown.

3.Transfer to the plate. Serve with tomato ketchup.
