1
Wash 500 grams of bitter gourd (karela) thoroughly and slice them into thin round pieces. Remove the seeds if desired.
2
In a bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of salt with the sliced karela and let it sit for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, squeeze out the excess water from the karela slices.
3
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds and let them crackle.
4
Add 1 finely chopped onion to the pan and sauté until it turns golden brown.
5
Add the squeezed karela slices to the pan and mix well. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the karela becomes slightly crispy.
6
Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of red chili powder, 1 teaspoon of coriander powder, and 1 teaspoon of amchur (dry mango powder) to the pan. Mix well and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
7
Adjust salt to taste and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with roti or paratha.
