Day 2 of 17th Blogging Marathon, I present to you quite an unusual vathal" Pavakkai Vathal". It is very very easy to make. You do not need any special preparation to make this. The moment you think about, this can be made in less than an hour s time.
Bittergourd - 1 kg
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Salt - as required
Clean and wash the Bitter gourd
Slice them into thin pieces
Add turmeric powder and salt to boiling water
Add the sliced bitter gourd to this and let it boil for 5 mins
Ensure that the bitter gourd is not fully done
Let it stand for some 10 mins
Drain the water
Spread this on a plastic sheet or an aluminium sheet and dry it in the sun
Dry it till it is very hard to touch
To use this vathal, heat some oil in a wok
When the oil is hot, deep fry a handful of them and serve with hot sambhar rice.
