Pavakka Mezhukkupuratti/Bittergourd Stir Fry


Bittergourd – 1/2 kg

Green chillies, slit – 8 nos
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed
Coconut oil – 5 tbsp

Cut bittergourd into small thin pieces. Marinate these pieces with salt and turmeric. 

Heat oil in a pan. Add bittergourd pieces and green chillies. Stir well. Close the pan with a lid and allow it to cook in low flame for 10 minutes. Open the lid and stir in between to check if it is uniformly fried. When bittergourd is almost fried, switch off the stove and transfer it to a serving plate.
