BURNT BITTERGOURD / KARPAAYILE KARATE

This is my own recipe, very simple and tasty too. I love Bittergourd in any form, normally I make Karate Talasani, a Konkani preparation and Karate Podi. This time I thought of making it in different way. The come out was very good, so thought of sharing in my Blog.

BURNT BITTERGOURD / KARPAAYILE KARATE


WHAT YOU NEED:


Bittergourd - 2 medium


Onion - 1


Garlic - 7-8 cloves


Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp or to taste


Tamarind paste - 1 tsp heaped.


Salt - to taste


HOW TO MAKE:


Wash bittergourds well and slice them in thin rounds. Apply salt and keep aside for half an hour.


Same way slice onion also.


Crush garlic with skin intact.


Now heat 1 tbsp oil in kadahi with high flame. 


Put crushed garlic, saute till it is dark brown in color.


Add onion and fry till it is dark brown in color.

 
Now squeeze out the salt water from bittergourd and put in kadahi. Mix well.

Stir in between, check the salt and fry the bittergourds till they are dark brown, slightly burnt and well cooked.
