Pavakkai Chips / Bitter Gourd Chips


Today's recipe is simple & easy crispy snack, Bitter gourd Chips. This is one of the easy n best way to make kids eat bitter gourd or anyone who hate bitter gourd. The mild spicy & crispy Bitter gourd chips makes a perfect tea time snack. I have already posted the recipe for Bitter gourd Pakoda which is also a deep fried tea time snack. But compared to the pakodas this chips uses very little flours, spices and its as simple as fried onions and can be done in a jiffy n serve with your favorite hot or cold drink. We even love this bitter gourd chips as a side dish with rasam or sambar rice.

Ingredients
  1. Bitter gourd   2 medium sized (cut into thin slices, remove seeds)
  2. Rice flour      1 and 1/2 tbsp
  3. Gram flour    1 tsp
  4. Salt   to taste
  5. Chilli powder     1/2 tsp or to taste
  6. Turmeric powder   a pinch
  7. Hing    a pinch (optional)
  8. Oil    to deep fry

Method
  • Wash bitter gourds thoroughly then wipe it with paper towel.
  • Cut into thin slices(as thin as possible) and spread the cut slices in a plate and leave it aside for 10-15 minutes, this way the excess moisture gets dried.
  • After that to the bitter gourd slices, add rice flour, gram flour, salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder and mix everything well. Do not add or sprinkle water.
  • Now heat oil in kadai, when it gets heated add slice by slice and deep fry in medium high heat on both sides until the hissing sound stops.
  • Once the sound stops, the bitter gourds are done, remove from the oil and drain the excess oil in paper towel.
  • Do repeat the same procedure for all remaining bitter gourd slices, add 15-20 slices per batch, if using wide pan add more, depending on the pan size fry more or less, do not clump all together.
  • That's it...Crispy & tasty Bitter gourd chips ready to munch.
