Kovaikkai Stir Fry / Ivy Gourd fry

Kovaikkai is a wonderful vegetable. Its called Ivy gourd in English. 

Gendrally I use to fry this vegetable and serve hot with sambar sadam. My daughter favorite is kovaikkai fry. Here I have used a special podi for this fry which I add at the end of the frying process. This powder gives wonderful aroma and its wonderful when we taste it. We can store this powder and use it for other fries also. Here we go…..:)

Kovaikkai 500g (cut it to fine semicircles)
Red chilli powder 2tsp
Turmeric powder 1tsp
Salt to taste
Special powder
Corriander seeds 2tsp
Channa dhal 2tsp
Red chilli 5no
Jeera 1tsp
Fry all the above ingredients in 1/2 tsp of oil and grind it in to fine powder and add 2tsp.
Mustard seeds 1tsp
Urad dhal ½ tsp
oil for seasoning
Heat the pan, add oil and seasonings, Add the cut kovaikkai and fry for 2 min. Add turmeric powder , red chilli powder and salt. Fry well till the oil seperates from the mass. Then at last add 2tsp of special powder and fry for 2min. Then serve hot with sambar sadam or rasam.

Note : We can  add onion also for this fry.  Add onion first ,fry for some time and then add the kovaikkai.
