Gossale Sheer Thelleli (Deep fried ridge gourd skin)

Gossage Sheer Thelleli / Deep Fried Ridge Gourd Skin – a tasty side dish with rice in Konkan cuisine. Recipe from my amma.

Makes: ½ cup


1  medium size ridge gourd (gossale)

1 tablespoon rice flour

¼ teaspoon turmeric powder

½ teaspoon red chilli powder

2 pinches hing (asafoetida)

¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)

150 ml oil to deep fry


Wash gossale and wipe with a kitchen towel.  Cut gossale  into 1.5 – inch roundels, gently peel off thick sheer.

In a small bowl, mix gossale sheer with rice flour, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, hing and salt. Apply it evenly on gossale sheer. Keep aside for 15 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan or karahi on medium heat. Deep fry marinated gossale sheer until crisp and golden brown on both the sides. Drain out from oil and place on kitchen towel / paper  towel  to absorb extra oil. Serve hot with rice and other accompaniments.
