Karathe phodi-Bittergourd fries

I have been thinking hard what to prepare for VoW-Bittergourd event.All my blogger friends have posted such yummy recipes that I am lost as to what to make myself.I wanted to make bittergourd kondattams but I was running out of time.I was casually talking about this to my hubby and suddenly got the idea of making it for VoW.It is one of the items on menu for Ugadi,so two birds and a stone;-)This is the only way I like bittergourd.Hubby loves this and asks me to make it every now and then.But since its a deep fried item,it finds a way into the plate only once in a while..Like this time..

Karathe phodi/Bittergourd fries


Bittergourd - 1 big,cut in thin round slices-discard hard seeds,if any.
Chilly powder - 2 tbsp
Hing/asafoetida - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Rice flour-as required
Oil for frying


Wash bitter gourd slices well.
Make a paste of chilly powder,hing and salt.
Apply this to the bitter gourd slices and keep aside for 15 minutes.
Roll the slices in rice flour and deep fry in oil.
Fry till both sides are well browned and cooked.
Serve with rice or just as a snack..!!
