Past few days, my daughter wants to have it often and bitter gourd is in my fridge always.
Bitter Gourd - 2 big
Corn flour - 1 tsp
Rice flour - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste(less as we use salt to clean the bitter gourd)
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Ajwain - 1/2 tsp
Oil to fry
To clean the bitter gourd
Salt 1 tbsp or to cover the bitter gourd
A pinch of turmeric powder
Yogurt - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Pepper powder - a pinch
Wash the bitter gourd.
Peel the skin and cut into two parts.
Remove the seeds.
Mix the salt and haldi and apply it well to both the sides.
Keep it for an hour or two.
Squeeze and wash the pieces twice.
Cut into thin slices and allow to dry.
Heat the oil.
You can either shallow fry or deep fry. But I felt the deep fried chips took less oil than the shallow fried ones.
Keep it for some time till they get crispy.
Just before serving
Prepare the curds with given ingredients.
Add the crispy chips and serve it.
