Recipe
1
Wash 500 grams of bitter gourd (karela) and cut them into thin round slices. Remove the seeds if they are too hard. Soak the slices in salted water for 20 minutes to reduce bitterness. Drain and pat dry with a clean cloth.
2
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds and let them splutter.
3
Add 1 finely chopped onion and sauté until it turns golden brown.
4
Add 1 teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste and sauté for a minute.
5
Add 2 chopped tomatoes and cook until they turn soft and mushy.
6
Add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of red chili powder, 1 teaspoon of coriander powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala. Cook the spices for 2-3 minutes.
7
Add the sliced bitter gourd to the pan and mix well. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
8
Add salt to taste and 1/2 teaspoon of amchur (dry mango) powder. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
9
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with roti or rice.
