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 20-30 minutes. This will help reduce the bitterness. After that, rinse the karela slices with water and drain them well.
3
In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds and let them splutter.
4
Add 1 finely chopped onion and 2-3 chopped green chillies to the pan. Sauté until the onions turn golden brown.
5
Add the drained karela slices to the pan and mix well. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the karela slices become crispy and golden brown.
6
Add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon of red chilli powder, and salt to taste. Mix well and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
7
Turn off the heat and garnish the karela fry with chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with roti or rice.
