Share with friends and family

Bittergourd is a vegetable which is loaded with a lot of health benefits . As the name suggests, the bitterness in the vegetables causes the vegetable to be disliked by children as well adults. I too fall in the same category of people who dislike this healthy vegetable.As a child I very faintly remember my mom making some chips out of this which used to be crunchy and tasty without the bitterness lingering on the taste buds. I tried hard to recollect the taste and when the other day when my hubby asked me to make something out of Bittergourd, I immediately made this chips and I was amazed to experience the same taste and texture as how amma used to make.

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 10-15 mins
Complexity : Medium

1 medium bittergourd
1 tablespoon gram flour /besan / kadala maav
1 tsp rice flour
1-2 tsp of red chilli powder
1 tsp haldi powder
salt to taste
oil to deep fry


Cut the head and tail end of the bitter gourd and cut them into thin round slices. In a mixing bowl, add the slices, the gram flour, rice flour, salt, red chilli powder, salt and a few drops of water and mix it well such that the slices are coated nicely with flour mixture.

Heat the oil for frying and drop the slices one by one into the hot oil and fry.

Fry until the slices turn crispy and golden brown . Drain it and serve it along with rice , sambar or you can even munch it as snacks.
