Bitter Gourd Chips

Bitter Gourd Chips or Pavakkai Chips. Trust me, even those who can't stand bitter gourd I bet will truly love these crispy fried bitter gourd chips. Maybe I shouldn't speak on behalf of others, in my house, oh-my-god, the moment these chips are out of my frying pan, they just disappear even before anything else (Lotus Root Chips, Crispy Fried Okra & Mushroom Rolls). Hands will just crawl just like that. Even myself, I myself can't help putting some in my mouth (Cauliflower Fritters). To make bitter gourd chips, lemme tell you that its  really simplified. Yes. But make sure you slice bitter gourd to utmost thinly which by far is crucial (Valakkai Chips). Otherwise, I'm afraid chips will not be as crispy as you expect and believe me, somehow its like magical that once bitter gourd is fried, its bitterness just vanishes in thin air (Bitter Gourd Puli Curry, Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry & Bitter Gourd Sambar). Bitter Gourd Chips? Ahhhhh! Just so good. Oh, what is unique and out of this world for this my version Bitter Gourd Chips? Curry leaves fried together. You should try and trust me, you won't regret.
