Delicious crispy and spicy karela chips.. I have been wanting to make these ever since I tasted them during  my last visit to Mumbai. These awesomely crunchy munchies can be relished as a snack or served with sambar rice / dal chawal as a side dish.

Karelas ... 2-3 (sliced Finely)
Salt ... to taste
Rice flour .. 2 tbsps
Red chilli powder .. 1 tsp
Cumin powder or garam masala or chat masala .. to sprinkle on top.
Oil ... to deep fry


1. Wash the karelas and slice them finely with the skin.

2. Sprinkle the rice flour, salt and red chilli powder on them and mix well.

3. Heat oil in a pan / kadai and tip in the karela slices in 2 or 3 batches depending on the size of the pan..First fry on high flame and reduce it.

4. Keep turning them and fry until they are crispy. During the process you have increase and decrease the heat a few times to get the perfect  crunchiness. Drain out on a paper towel. Sprinkle cumin powder or garam masala or if you like chat masala on top.

Pin for later
