Ingredients for Pavakka Kondattom:


  • To make kondattam at home: 1)Slice the bitter gourd into thin round pieces.
  • Make a batter with curd, turmeric powder, chilly powder and salt.
  • Mix the sliced bitter gourd with the batter and dry in sun for 3 to 4 days.
  • Note: As pavakka is mixed with curd, it tastes better and not bitter.
  • For preparation of kichadi: 1)Chop onion, green chillies, curry leaves, salt and mix it with curd.
  • Fry Kondattom and mix it with the curd.
  • Take a pan and pour coconut oil. Splutter mustard seeds and add red chillies and curry leaves. Pour it over the curd mixture.
  • Close the kichadi with lid for 5 minutes for the flavor.
  • Serve with rice or rice items.
  • Note: 1)No cooking in fire required except to fry kondattam and kaduku varuval. 2)You can avoid kaduku varuval and pour some fresh coconut oil over the top and close the lid.
  • Forget about kaduku varuval or coconut oil. It tastes better even without those.
