Bitter Gourd Curry | Karela Fry | Special Desi Recipes

Bitter Gourd Fry - with detail photo and video recipe.Tasty and Tangy bitter gourd fry curry done with tamarind jaggery and sesame. This is recipe is of kind bitter gourd which doesn't taste bitter. If the curry still tastes bitter try to add some more jaggery and enjoy. Of course, adding jaggery and tamarind is of unhealthy version but, once in a month is ok only, if you want to taste different varieties.

Bittergourd is a powerful antiviral property, which stimulates the immune system. Bitter gourd works great for a diabetic patient.

Firstly cleanly wash the bitter gourd under running water, then chop the bitter gourd into round shape without removing the skin. Because even the bitter gourd is nutritious for health. After chopping,  add salt to the bitter gourd and rest for about 20 minutes.

      ( NoteOne can skip the resting process if one can consume the bitter gourd as it is.)

Doing this process just reduces the bitterness so that even the kids can eat it without hesitation. After 20 minutes add water, clean and squeeze out all the water. That's it small tricks in cooking bitter gourd gives less bitterness and healthy curry for lunch.

Finally, I want to highlight some of my recipes like,
