Recipe Notes


Let’s see how to make Bitter gourd curry today

This is a very different kind of bitter gourd curry. This curry won’t be bitter at all
This recipe is called bitter gourd curry, garlic-chilli bitter gourd curry, etc.

Wash and slice the bitter gourd pieces into circular pieces
Remove the bigger seeds inside.

We have to prepare masala first
Heat pan
Add 2 teaspoons coriander seeds and fry
Add 1 teaspoon cumin seeds and fry
Add 2 teaspoons sesame seeds and fry
Fry dried chillies till they change colour
As dried chillies start colour, move it into a plate

Let them cool down now

In the meantime let’s fry bitter gourd slices
Here I deep fried the slices
This is to remove the bitterness from the pieces
This step can be skipped
There are different methods to reduce the bitterness of the bitter gourds like – soaking them in salt solution, boiling them in butter milk, etc
Any one of the processes could be used here
Here I deep fried the slices

Heat 4-5 tablespoons oil in pan
Add bitter gourd slices and fry till they turn light brown
Salt or any other ingredients are not be used here
Move the fried pieces into a bowl
Add the previously fried seeds to a mixie jar along with garlic cloves, fried dried chillies and 5-8 grams tamarind
Grind into a fine powder
Let’s marinate the bitter gourd pieces now
To the bitter gourd pieces, add 1/2 teaspoon powdered jaggery. This is to furthur reduce the bitterness
Adding jaggery is also optional
Add prepared masala powder, 1 teaspoon salt or salt to taste and let it sit for 10 minutes
Take 2 teaspoons of the oil used to fry bitter gourds
Add chopped onions and fry
Add onions generously since they make up the gravy part of the curry in this recipe
Fry till onions turn brown
Add green chillies and fry
Add salt if desired
Add 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder and mix
Fry for a minute and add marinated bitter gourd pieces
Mix and taste it for salt and chilli powder
Fry 2-3 minutes on low flame
