I love going to my family home and finding a pile of garden vegetables on the kitchen bench. Lately it’s been the inspiration for what I make for My Tamil Kitchen.
I had been watching the பாவக்காய் (bitter gourd) grow in her garden, and finally they were ready to be cooked. This recipe is for fried bitter gourd to be eaten as a side with rice. Similar to the green banana chips. I have previously posted the recipe for fried bitter gourd salad.
1 பாவக்காய் (about the size of the one in the above photo with the yellow tip)
1/2 tsp curry powder (as much as you want)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil for deep frying
1. Slice the பாவக்காய்.
2. Mix curry powder and salt.
3. Heat up oil till very hot and fry till the பாவக்காய் is crispy.
4. Store in a plastic container till ready to eat.
