Paavaikkai Varuval (பாவைக்காய் வறுவல்)

Paavaikkai Varuval is like paavaikkai chips but needs to be served within a couple of hours of preparation or it can get soggy. This is a very crispy and crunchy dish and has a little bit of the bitterness from the paavaikkai. 6 bitter gourd may sound like a lot, but it will shrink and become very small in quantity. The recipe brings the nutrients that come with bitter gourd and is not very bitter and is palatable.
