Bittergourd: 250 gms
1/2 tsp Green Mango pwder
1/2 tsp Cumin seed powder
1/4 tsp Black salt
green chllies finely chopped
1 tsp Tamarind paste
Salt to taste
1 tomato finely chopped
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1 onion finely chopped(optional)
Oil for frying
Peel off bittergourd and make thin slices.
Add 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp turmeric powder to chopped bittergourd.Mix well. Cover with a lid and leave aside for 4-5 hours.
After 4-5 hours bittergourd will leave some water. Squeeze it completely. That will take off the bitter taste.
After squeezing you can spread it under the fan or in sun for 10-15 mins for drying.
Heat oil in a frying pan.
Fry bittergourd(till deep brown).
Now take fried bittergourd in a container and add all the masalas and tamarind paste.
Add finely chopped tomatoes and onions.
Add green chillies.
Make it as chatpata as possible.(Almost like you make a potato chaat).
Garnish with some coriander leaves and serve.
