How to Make Karela Rajma

  • Trim the ends and cut the karela into rings.
  • Remove the hard seeds in the centre, put the karela rings in a microwave safe bowl, add about 1 cup of water, and microwave* until tender for about 10-15 minutes.
  • The karela should still have a slight bite to it.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and asafoetida.
  • When the seeds sputter, add the onions, sugar and stir fry until the onions begin to brown.
  • Add the garlic and stir for a minute.
  • Add the garam masala, chilli powder, and turmeric( if using).
  • Stir to coat the spices with oil and toast them for about a minute.
  • Add the karela and stir in.
  • Then add the rajma and about 1 cup of water and salt to taste.
  • Simmer the curry for about 10 minutes on medium heat.
  • Add the coconut milk and turn off the heat and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander, if desired.
