A simple stir fry of ivygourd seasoned with lots of garlic is heavenly. It can be served as a starter or even as a side dish with dal and rice.
- 1/2kg Ivy gourd
- A big handful of peeled garlic
- Dry red chillies depending on your spice level
- 2 tbsps coconut oil
Wash, snip the ends and lightly crush the ivygourd so that it is crushed but intact. Lightly crush the garlic too. Heat 2 tbsps coconut oil. Add the garlic and roast till it is a nice golden brown. Add the broken red chillies and toss. Drop in the ivygourd , salt and a glass of water. Once it starts boiling reduce heat and cook till done. Roast the ivygourd drizzling oil to roast it evenly on a very slow flame till it is well roasted inside out.
