South Indian Vegetarian Main Course Special
Mini Bitter Gourd Fry (Chinna Kakarakaya Vepudu/Midhi Pavakkai)
I have been seeing these small Bitter Gourds since January but finally got to try these with help of my Mom who recently has started growing these in Delhi & believe me they look very Nice on the creepers with our North Indian neighbors asking for more!!
In Tamil, this Bitter Gourd is called the Midhi Pavakkai & in Telugu it is Chinna Kakarakaya
These are also the tastier one than the regular Bitter Gourd
Extra Light Olive Oil/Olive Pomace Oil-
Mini Bitter Gourd (Chinna Kakarakaya/Midhi Pavakkai)-

Also check for any Gourd which may be unusually soft, red or damaged

Serve Fresh with Steamed Rice (with Warm Melted Ghee of course!), Dal/Pappu, Vegetable Tamarind Stew/Pulusu & Set Curd!
