  • 2 medium-sized bitter gourds
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • 1 tbsp red chili powder
  • 2 tbsp gram flour
  • ½ tbsp cumin powder
  • ½ tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Salt


Prepare the Bitter Gourd:

  • Wash the bitter gourds thoroughly and pat them dry.
  • Cut the bitter gourds into thin rounds or semi-circles, depending on your preference.
  • Remove the seeds if you prefer a milder taste.


  • In a mixing bowl, toss the bitter gourd slices with olive oil, rice flour, red chili powder, gram flour, cumin powder, and salt. Ensure that the bitter gourd slices are well-coated with the seasoning.

Preheat the Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.

Air Fry:

  • Place the seasoned bitter gourd slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Make sure not to overcrowd to allow even cooking.
  • Air fry at 375°F (190°C) for about 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket or flipping the slices halfway through the cooking time. The bitter gourd should become crisp and golden brown.


  • Once the bitter gourd fry is done, remove it from the air fryer and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Serve the crispy bitter gourd fry as a side dish with rice or enjoy it as a healthy snack.
