  • How to Make Rasila Karela:

    2. Drain water. Let it cool and then gently squeeze the water out.
    3. In a kadai, heat oil and fry besan.
    4. When you smell the aroma, put all dry masala (chilli powder, haldi-dhania-salt-sugar) in besan and mix it very well.
    5. Since besan is already hot, you don't need to fry this masala for too long.
    6. Let this masala cool.
    7. Now stuff this masala in the boiled karela.
    8. Take kadai, heat oil (about 1/2 cup) and fry stuffed karela in it.

    10. Serve hot.
