Fried bitter gourd

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 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.

2. Mix curry powder and salt.
