How to Make Sweet And Hot Karela Curry

  • Wash and chop karelas and keep in a bowl containing lemon juice and salt for about an hour before cooking to take away the bitter taste.
  • Dry roast urad dal, chana dal, red chillies and jeera.
  • Add all these ingredients with grated coconut and make masala paste.
  • Take oil in a flat bottomed vessel and fry karelas after thoroughly squeezing them dry.
  • Once they are fried, add tamarind pulp and jaggery and cook the karelas.
  • Add the masala paste while cooking and add water to thin the curry according to the requirement.
  • Bring it to boil and season with mustard, curry leaves and hing.
  • This tastes great with Rice, Dosa, Adai and even Upma.
