Parwal Bhujiya | Pointed Gourd Stirfry Recipe
Parwal or pointed gourd is seasonal vegetable popular more in North India than South, it looks similar to Tindora but little large in size, plump but taste different than tindora. The most common curry made with parwal is Aloo Parwal Sabzi which I already posted and another is this stir fry which normally made for breakfast along roti or paratha as it's quick to prepare than aloo parwal sabzi.



Made with minimal ingredients this parwal fry still taste fabulous if made properly ie you have to fry the parwal real well the more we fry/saute it the better it taste.

Like in my aloo parwal curry again this time I missed to take parwal/pointed gourd pictures it seems this has wait and also there's no step wise pictures for this recipe.  If you want to keep parwal fresh for longer time then immerse them in water and at room temperature it will say fresh for 2-3 days but parwal is always good to consume fresh and sooner.  Try this parwal fry and you will like it.
