Notes

• Half teaspoon of red chilly powder and a small onion also ca be added in this recipe. • Kovaykka Mezhukkupuratti tastes best if it is roasted in coconut oil in low flame for more time till it become slightly crispy outer side. • Use tender Ivy gourd for better taste. Avoid Ivy gourd which is red inside.
