Ingredients

  • Karela - 4 to 5
  • Mustard oil
  • For Filling:
  • Cardamom - 1
  • Cloves - 2
  • Mustard - 1 tsp
  • Jeera - 2 tsp
  • Garlic - 4 to 5 pieces
  • Black pepper - 4 to 5

  • How to Make Dry Masala Karela:

    1. Peel the karelas, add salt to them and keep aside overnight. Then in the morning wash them.
    2. Grind into a smooth paste all the spices to be used for filling.
    3. Take out seeds from the karelas and fill them with this mixture.
    4. Wrap these karelas with thread so that masala does not come out while cooking.
    5. Put mustard oil in kadai in a quantity enough to cook karelas (but not to deep fry).
    6. Heat the oil.
    7. Now put the karelas in the kadai on low flame.
    8. Cover the kadai with a lid.
    9. Move the karelas after 2 to 3 minutes so that they get cooked completely from all sides.
    10. After 15 to 20 minutes, take them out in a container.
    11. Serve with puris or parathas.
