|Pavakkai Poriyal with Tomato|
Pavakkai Poriyal is a simple stir fry made with Bitter gourd. This is my mother's version of Pavakkai Poriyal, made using tomato. I have already posted a different version of Pavakkai Poriyal without tomato. My mom makes it by pre-cooking the bitter gourd with turmeric and salt and then stir frying it. This version is also to easy to make and quite delicious. I love this poriyal and everytime mom makes it, I will finish it fully. The usage of tomato in the stir fry cuts down the bitterness of Bitter gourd. Mom makes this stir fry at least once a week. Bitter gourd is diabetic friendly vegetable and it is said that this vegetable keeps blood sugar level in control.
