Kovaikkai stir-fry

This lovely delecious side-dish goes very good with any podi sadham/dry flavoured rice

Ingredients required

  • 1 cup of kovaikkai
  • Oil, as required
To temper
  • 3 tsp of oil
  • 1/2 tsp of rai/mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp whole cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp of dry kasoori methi
  • 2-3 slit green chillies 
  • 1 tsp of Everest chicken masala (Go ahead and try guys...this has aromatic combo of spices which shud be relished by all)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • Pinch of haldi/turmeric powder


Atfirst, cut kovaikkai the both side-ends

Then finely chop them vertically to get fingerchips-look

Next step would be to semi-fry or deep fry these finger-like-kovaikkai till it turns golden brown, set aside.

I semi-fried it !

In a kadaai, add all ingredients for temper one by one, toss the fried kovaikkai well around masala.

Simmer for few minutes and serve hot with any rice

Was very tasty
