Saturday Lunch with Dal, Chawal and Kareli (Bittergourd) and Awards

Saturday Lunch with Dal, Chawal and Kareli (Bittergourd) and Awards


I
'm tend to prepare simple food for Saturdays lunch and that goes every week. Now a days resolution is to cook without using onion, green chilli and trying to cut down on garlic too [only for sat'day lunch ofcoz]


My sister loves khichidi for sat'day lunch and she will be so much happy with it :-)...but my DH prefers dal and chawal instead of khichidi so I'm doing that.


Last Saturday I prepared rice, dal with tempering of jeera, dry red chili and garlic and bitter gourd fry.






For Bitter gourd Fry/Stir Fry:


Ingredients:


Bitter ground - 4
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Dry Mango Powder /Amchur - 1/2 tsp [optional]
Salt - to taste


Method:


1. Wash and peel bitter gourd and cut in thin slices. 

2. Marinate with little salt and turmeric powder and leave it for 10-20mins. 
 If you wish you can squeeze out the water from bittergourd [I don't squeeze ]

3.  In a pan heat oil, add cumin seeds, add bitter gourd and fry on low flame until it turn black/brown in colour & become crisp.
If using amchur then add 2 minutes before turning off the flame.



Here is the platter with rice, dal, bittergourd fry, pickle and papad :-)
