An off-beat finger-food from Burmese cuisine, the Budijaw is made by deep-frying bottle gourd fingers coated in a spicy batter. The batter gets its lip-smacking flavour from a pungent onion paste and a couple of spice powders too.
This crispy snack is complemented well by a tangy and spicy garlic chutney. Serve this Burmese Doodhi Snack immediately on preparation, to enjoy its special texture that is crisp outside and succulent inside.
