How to Make Rasila Karela

  • Peel karela, make one slit in it and cook just for 2 minutes in boiling water.
  • Drain water. Let it cool and then gently squeeze the water out.
  • In a kadai, heat oil and fry besan.
  • When you smell the aroma, put all dry masala (chilli powder, haldi-dhania-salt-sugar) in besan and mix it very well.
  • Since besan is already hot, you don't need to fry this masala for too long.
  • Let this masala cool.
  • Now stuff this masala in the boiled karela.
  • Take kadai, heat oil (about 1/2 cup) and fry stuffed karela in it.
  • When skin is brown take it out.
  • Serve hot.
