On most days, I hop my way around in the kitchen because of two little hands holding onto my legs so tight ensuring I don't get to move much. This is why I have come up with the quickest way to satiate my want for Karela. Here is the recipe.
250 gms tender karela (Bitter gourd)
2 heaped tsps peanut butter
5 garlic cloves minced
Salt to taste
5 curry leaves
2 tsp oil
Finely chop karela, add a pinch of turmeric and salt. Boil it for one whistle in pressure cooker.
Let it cool down completely and then squeeze excess water.
Heat oil in a kadai, add curry leaves and garlic. Saute till garlic turns light brown.
Add karela and mix. Saute for 5 minutes and add peanut butter. Mix thoroughly. Check salt and add chilli powder if you wish to.
Saute for another 5 minutes and turn off the gas.
Enjoy peanut buttery karela (bitter gourd) with rice or chapati !!
ps - This is a great way to introduce karela to your kids too :-)
