Peanut butter karela

There are two kinds of people, one who hate karela and second, whose favourite happens to be karela. Believe it or not, there is no middle way! Either you cant bear the sight of it or you love it to the point that they are your "favouritesttt"! I fall in the latter category. I love it in any form and so I keep experimenting with more and more flavours to go with it.

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.

Ingredients
250 gms tender karela (Bitter gourd)
2 heaped tsps peanut butter
Turmeric
5 garlic cloves minced
Salt to taste
5 curry leaves
2 tsp oil

Method
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 :-)

  2. It is advisable to keep a few points in mind when you set out to buy one. It is always best to buy one with a twelve inch diameter. The heavier the pot plus the thicker the metal at the base, the better it can be for cooking. Dutch Oven Cookware
