Potol Bhaja (Parwal / Pointed Gourd Fry - Bengali Style)

          Potol (Parwal / Pointed Gourd) Bhaja is a very common shallow fried veggie. It is a favorite side dish relished with rice and dal in most of the Bengali house hold. It requires just a marination of salt and turmeric powder. For a more spicy version, a little bit of chili powder is always welcome.

  • 7-8 Potol (Parwal / Pointed gourd), cut into half
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp. red chili powder (opt)
  • 4-5 tbsp. mustard oil

           Marinate the potols with salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder (opt)  for 5-10 minutes. Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry them till light golden brown in colour.

          Drain on a kitchen towel and serve hot as a side dish along with rice and dal (lentil).
