The easiest of all the dishes made till now.. Simple curry, simple ingredients and a perfect side dish. I used to hate Gherkins as a kid as I somehow, somewhere heard that I Gherkins slows makes the mind go numb.. And I was scared of all my wits.. It was only after many a lectures that I began to et these Gherkins or Dondakaya as we call them. Over the years, I have grown rather fond of these little green friends of mine. Here is a simple and very easy way of making Dondakaya Vepudu - Gherkins Fry.

  • 250 gms Dondakaya/ Gherkins, cut into pieces
  • Oil For deep frying
  • Salt and Chilly Pwd to taste
