Strong spicy and bitter notes combined with an irresistible crunch make the Karela Chips a total delight to bite into!
It is a multi-flavoured treat that kind of tickles and excites your taste buds. It is made by deep-frying spice-coated slices of karela. The karela must be sliced using a slicer and not a knife, to get uniformly thin slices.
It is then marinated with salt, mixed with masala and deep-fried. Since, we are already marinating in salt, do not add more salt when mixing the spices and flours.
The Karela Chips tastes delightful when relished with a bowl of hot dal rice. While it tastes best when served immediately, you can also cool it completely and store in an airtight container for 3 to 4 hours.

- Combine the karela and salt in a deep bowl and mix well with your hands.
- Cover with a lid and keep aside for 30 minutes.
- Remove all the excess water by squeezing it very well between your palms.
- Add all the other ingredients and 2 ½ tbsp of water and mix very well or till the karela coats the masalas well.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry a few karela slices at a time on a medium flame till they turn crispy and golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Cool slightly and serve or use as required.
