    Side Dish

  • Cusine



2 tablespoon cooking oil

1 teaspoon fennel seeds

2 1 ⁄2 cups red onion

4 cups karela

Salt to taste

1 tablespoon coriander powder

1 1 ⁄2 teaspoon amchur powder


Heat oil in a wok or saute pan, on medium high heat. Add fennel seeds. As they sputter add bitter gourd. Saute for 5 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium low and add red onion, followed by turmeric. Cook for 15 minutes, gently stirring every 2­3 minutes, in order to keep bitter gourd from sticking to the bottom. Add salt and coriander powder. Stir well and cook for for another 3­5 minutes until bitter gourd is cooked through. Sprinkle amchur powder. Toss well to mix well. Turn off the heat. Cover with a lid for 10 minutes before serving as a side with a simple Indian meal of roti, dal soup and steamed rice.
