Bitter gourd chips recipe | Pavakkai chips recipe – with tips to make crispy pavakkai chips – Bitter gourd chips recipe with full video and step by step instructions.

Pavakkai chips are one of the popular ones in A2B shop and Hot chips outlet in Chennai. When they introduced this, we used to buy this crazily and enjoy this with every meal. We have posted a pavakkai fry recipe in Jeyashris kitchen many years back. I always want to replicate the A2B style of bitter gourd chips. I tried last week at home and it turned out perfect.

The main key is slicing the bitter gourd super thin. Usually, some people add salt to the sliced bitter gourd and keep it aside for 20 minutes and then wash it. This step is done to get rid of the bitterness in the pavakkai. But I haven’t done that. Still, the bitter gourd chips were not too bitter. If you want to do this go ahead and do this and then proceed with the rest.
