Bittergourd with Besan

I am back after a loong holiday trip with bittergourd variety ......

What We Need :

Bittergourd - 3no
Besan - 1-1/2 cup
Jeera Powder - 1spn
Red chillie powder - 1spn
Lemon - 1slice
Oil for deep frying

Salt to your taste

How To Do :

  • Clean the bittergourd and chop them into round shape and clear the seeds from it as shown below, even if you are interested you can keep them also.
  •  In a big bowl take these pieces add besan and enough salt mix well with enough water dont make it like a batter, besan need to stick to the bittergourd pieces.
  • Heat oil for deep frying and fry the bittergourd pieces seperately until they turn golden brown color.
  • Add lemon juice, red chillie powder, jeera powder and toss the fried bittergourd when they are hot.
 Here is my bittergourd with besan, serve hot with Sambar and white rice .......
