Kovakkai Fry

Kovakkai - 1/4 kg
red chilli powder - 1 tsp
oil - 3 - 4 tbsp
turmeric - 1/4 tsp
salt to taste
dhal powder - 2 tsp
curry leaves - 10 - 12

- cut the kovakkai as indicated in the picture (i.e length wise)

- add salt, turmeric and chilli powder to the kovakkai and mix well

- leave it to marinate for 10 mins
- in a pan add oil and add the kovakai
- fry

- fry till they turn golden brown
- it would take a time, so to make the process easier add water (1/2 cup) and cover the pan with a lid.

- when the water is fully evaporated and when the oil oozes out, add curry leaves and the dhal powder.
- fry till the dhal powder forms a nice coating to the kovakkai and turns brown in colour.
- serve with sambar or as a side dish.
