Pavakkai / Bitter Gourd Chips

Bitter Gourd is something that I prepare every week; either as chips like these or as a stir fry. I avoid adding it in any curries as I fear I would not be able to include it in larger quantity. I've fried these many times, but fortunately I could click only yesterday.  Though deep fries are not my favorites, I feel it doesn't matter much if we have it less. 



Ingredients:

Bitter Gourd 1/4 kg
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Rice Powder 1/2 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste 1/4 tsp (optional)
Salt

Method:

Chop Bitter Gourd into very fine pieces.

Combine all the other ingredients. Leave it aside for 15 minutes.

Deep fry until brown.

Serve as a snack or as a side dish to rice.
