Bitter Gourd Peel Stir Fry

Karela ( Bitter Gourd) is one of my favorite vegetable. Today I'm sharing the recipe which I learnt from my mom. Though it is a simple recipe but it tastes good and  has medicinal qualities. You'll really love this recipe.


Bitter Gourd           1/2 Kg.
Mustard Oil             2 Tbsp
Onions                    3-4 (Sliced)
Turmeric Powder    1/4 tsp
Red Chilli Powder   1/4 tsp
Amchoor Powder     1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder     1/2tsp
Salt                          As per taste


Wash bitter gourd very well and pat them dry with kitchen towel. Scrap the outer skin of the bitter gourd. Heat mustard oil in a pan till smoking point. Add bitter gourd peel. Stir. Simmer the fire. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes or till the color of the peel changed into brown. Add sliced onions and cook for another five to seven minutes. Stir occasionally. Add in turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and salt. Mix well. Cook for another two minutes. Switch off the fire. Add amchoor powder and mix. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve. This goes very well with paranthas. Enjoy!!
