Surprised?

Well so was I these ghosali che kappas were shared by my colleague. Once I said I liked them he shared some more. More importantly, the rest shared the recipe with me and that was when I knew there are some hidden Goan treasures that will keep coming out of the box almost every day.

I was to actually share something different today but my love for these dragged me to do this post.

Like I said in my earlier post ridge gourd or Tuari or herekai is a very healthy vegetable. Check out the health benefits and other ridge gourd recipes here. This is a season for ghosali as they are called in Goa and the markets are flooded with them. These are the recipes that I have tried out with them check them out as they are easy to cook and healthy too. Just what Simple and Healthy Cooking this # Cooking Carnival needs.

There is no recipe as such juts a little of this and that but listing out what is needed.

Ridge Gourd Shallow Fried, Tuari Shallow Fried

Ghosali che Kappa

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.

    No idea about the taste, but one thing is for sure these look so cute. When I saw the pic, I started wondering what is this star shaped thing that looks shiny too due to all that coating. I’m sre my turai hater family will love its beauty too 🙂
