Deep-Fried Bitter Gourd

How about some deep fried bitter gourd for appetizer? It's true, we had some while waiting for the curry to cook. Interesting, huh?

Deep-Fried Bitter Gourd (Bitter Melon)


1 Medium Size (about 250 g) Bitter Gourd, sliced
10 Tbsp Chickpea Flour
3 Tbsp Rice Flour
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
A pinch of Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
A handful of Curry Leaves
1 tsp Smoked Paprika and Sea Salt for sprinkling
Oil for deep frying


Soak the sliced bitter gourd in the water with 1 tsp of sea salt for about 10 minutes. Drain well.

Combine the chickpea flour, rice flour, chili powder, garam masala, turmeric powder, sea salt and some curry leaves.

Toss in the bitter gourd and deep fry on a high heat until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle some paprika powder and sea salt. Serve immediately.
