Kkarakaya slits 4 cups
Kakarakaya ,wash thoroughly and chop in to small slits.Place in a bowl,add 2 spoons salt ,apply properly as if crushing the slits.Leave it for an hour ,then squeeze the slits and remove the water,and completely drain them .By this the bitterness of bitter gourd will be reduced.
Oil 2 tbsp
Be generous with oil coz this veg requires more oil as it will be tasty.
Dry red chillie powder
(to which jeera and garlic flakes are crushed and added.But i use only chilli powder)
Salt to taste
Haldi a pinch
Place a kadai on the stove,then add oil,after heating add the strained kakarakaya slits.
Fry in med flame.
Occasionally do mix the slits well.Beware or they may turn black,over fried.
It will take more than half an hour ,and when you think they are fried add salt and chillie powder.
Switch off the stove,and sreve in a serving bowl.
