I wanted to try this pavakkai (bitter gourd) podi ever since my MIL told me that she tried it after seeing it in a cookery show. But could not get that long variety bitter gourd that we get in India. Either it was not fresh or it was not tender. Finally found and tried making when my MIL was here last month. It turned out really good. These days we love Bitter gourd. I mostly make bitter gourd fries or rarely bitter gourd curry.
Store in an airtight container and I guess this should keep good for 10 days in room temperature.
