Wash and pat dry the bitter gourd.
Thinly slice the bitter gourd into roundels.
No need to discard the inner portion.
Cutting this into very thin slices is the key.
Add this to a bowl.
Add the gram flour, rice flour, red chili powder, salt and 1 tbsp hot oil.
Adding hot oil gives crispiness to the chips.
At this stage you can add crushed fennel seeds also.
Sprinkle little water and mix gently.
Heat oil for deep frying.
Fry them in batches.
Deep fry them till golden brown and the oil sound subsides.
Take out and drain in a kitchen towel.
Repeat this for the rest of the bitter gourd mixture.
Store this in an airtight container.
