Everyone has different specifications for their perfect cup of chai and making chai that impresses everyone is not everyone’s cup of tea!

Ridge gourd or Turai is not a very liked vegetable. However, when turned into deep fried pakodas, it is difficult to have at just one.

Just cut some turai in round shape, cover them with gram flour batter with salt and a little chili powder and deep fry them in hot oil. You can also make some chutney from dry mango powder and enjoy the rainy season with your favorite chai with hot pakodas.
