Aloo Parwal Stir Fry

Aloo parwal stir fry is one easy side dish. This is another quick stir fried vegetable. This recipe is a simple one and takes less than 15 minutes to cook.

Parwal or pointed gourd is abundantly available during summers. This is one of the nutritious vegetable. You can make only parwal fry or add in potatoes. Since potatoes are best paired up with any vegetables, it enhances the taste of the dish. And since kids have special love for potatoes, they will easily accept any such dish when combined with potatoes.

While chopping parwal, I don’t scrape out the outer skin of this vegetable. The layer is thin and edible. Also that makes the vegetable little crunchy outside. Still if you don’t like the skin you can peel it off.
