Kaipakya fry

Kaipakya or Pavakka is better known as bitterguord for its characteristic bitter taste. This is one vegetable which most of the people hate. Me too.. But there are some dishes that tastes wonderful. One such simple recipe is here...

Kaipakya - 150 grams
Chilly powder - 25 grams
Oil - 20 grams
Curry leaves - few
Salt and turmeric powder to taste.


  • Finely chop the kaipakya.
  • Add enough water and cook the kaipakya. 
  • When the kaipakya is almost cooked, add salt and turmeric powder and cook for another minute.
  • Switch off the stove and drain the extra water. This water will take away most of the bitterness of kaipakya.
  • Now spread the cooked kaipakya in a plate and sprinkle the chilly powder on top of it evenly and leave it for about 10 minutes.
  • In a kadai pour oil. Once the oil is heated add the curry leaves.
  • Add the kaipakya and fry for about 15-20 minutes.
  • keep stirring every 1 minute, so that all the sides of the kaipakya is fried.

Serve with curd rice or rasam rice.
