RIDGE GOURD CRISP AND BWP SALAD.

I love ridge gourd right from my childhood when my mom used to prepare this when am back from school. It goes well with rice as well as a snack item too. We konkani's call it as ''GHOSALE BALLUK''. I know it sounds different. This is simple and quick snack. Its crispy when its eaten hot.


INGREDIENTS.

1 Ridge gourd.

1/2 cup Rice flour.

Salt to taste.

Oil for deep fry.

METHOD.

Peel out the outside skin. Wash it and drain them. Cut into round thin pieces. Apply salt and keep it aside.

In a plate spread riceflour. Take out each pieces and cover them with riceflour all around pressing slightly.


Heat oil in a pan. Drop the piece one by one carefully. Cook till its slight brown.

Serve hot.


DIFFRENT NOTE.

You all must be wondering whats BWP salad is?. Its nothing but ''BROKEN WHEAT POMEGRANATE SALAD''. My friend JAYA has suggested one healthy diet salad which I would like to contribute on behalf of her to ''DIET FOOD EVENT'' HOSTED BY DIVYA. It is equal to full meal and she used to have it in her daily diet. Thanks for the lovly entry jaya and you have presented very well.


INGREDIENTS.

1 cup Broken wheat.

1/2 cup Peanuts.

1 Vegetable soup cube / maggi tastemaker.

1 Pomegranate.

1/2 cup Mint or coriander leaves.

1 tbs Lime juice.

2 tbs Extra virgin olive oil.

2 tbs Chopped onions.(Optional).
Salt and pepper to taste.

For non veggie people, boiled shredded chicken can be added. This makes them perfect.

METHOD.

Soak broken wheat for 2 to 3 hours. Drain and spread on a paper towel to get rid of the water.

Peanuts should be roasted without adding oil.

Mix all the above and tasty healthy salad is ready.


Enjoy!!
