Ghosali chi Kappa

Ingredients:

  • Ridge gourd 1-2
  • Haldi/turmeric ½ tsp
  • Chilli powder 1-2 tsp (adjust as per taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • Rava/sooji or Semolina for dredging
  • Oil for shallow frying

Method:

  • Slightly peel the edges of the points on the ridge gourd. I did not and the edges needed a lot more time to cook and they were still not too well cooked.
  • Add the salt, red chilli powder and smear slices.
  • Set aside for 10-20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes heat a non-stick tava/skillet.
  • Dredge the slices in rava/sooji and transfer the slices to the tava/skillet.
  • Using a teaspoon add oil around the slices.
  • You will need about 1-2 teaspoon cover and let the side become brown.
  • Flip and cook again till they are brown on the side.
  • Serve hot with rice, toi and bhaji. I will love them with a cup of tea also.
