Today I am posting one of the classic,crispy,mildly flavoured vegetarian dish that usually found in almost all marriage functions i.e."Dondakaya Palli Fry". Fried Dondakaya(Ivygourd),roasted Peanuts and flavoured spices makes you irrestible. I usually add dry coconut powder for extra flavour and taste.This dondakaya palli fry curry is very special in Andhra thali. Let us see the ingredients and procedure.
