A delicacy available only during the monsoons, a variety of dishes from a fry, a sukka, stir fry or a mix gravy can be made from Teasel Gourd. One needs to ensure that they are Dark Green in colour as the Light Green ones have large seeds within them. I personally love the crunch of the seeds so buy the slightly Light Green ones. Posting a Teasel Gourd Fry today which can be enjoyed as a side dish with Rice or can be eaten as a snack with tea.
- 250 gms Teasel Gourd
- 2 tsps chilly powder
- 1/2 tsp Hing/Asafoetida
- A mixture of Rice flour and Besan/Gram Flour in the ratio of 2:1.
- Oil for frying
Wash and slice the Teasel Gourd as shown in the picture. Sprinkle Chilly powder, salt and Hing. Mix well. Take the Rice flour and Besan in a plate and mix them well. Coat the slices with this mixture. Heat oil in a pan. Drop the coated slices and fry on a medium flame till crisp. Serve hot.
