Bitter Gourd Chilli Fry – So Crispy!

November 23, 2015

Bitter Gourd Chilli Fry: I got these nice fresh and large bitter gourds from the local market. 1 large bitter gourd is enough to serve more than two members. This time I’ve added more ingredients than my usual make. For more crispiness, I’ve added rice flour and deep fried them. This dish serves as an excellent side for korma as well as sambar.
