  • Mix karela with salt and amchur powder and keep aside for 1/2 hour

  • Cook covered under microwave high for 4 min, stirring after 2 mins.
  • Add jaggery powder and mix well, microwave high for 2 mins.
  • Check the curry and micro high again for another 1 or 2 mins if necessary (depending on the type of oven).
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle coriander leaves and ground nut powder.
