Bitter gourd minus bitterness 🙂

Ingredients:

250 gms Bitter gourd (remove seeds and cut into rounds)
oil for frying
turmeric powder
tamarind juice
chilli powder
coriander powder
1 onion finely chopped
5 -6 cloves of garlic crushed
1 tsp jeera
1 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch of hing
Coriander leaves for garnish

Method:

Soak the chopped bittergourd in water and add turmeric, salt and tamarind juice for half an hour.This helps the bittergourd to lose the bitterness.
Take oil for frying in a pan.
When the oil heats up, add the bittergourd little by little so that there is enough space for frying them.
Take them out when they are nearly crisp and keep aside.
Now take about 2 tbsp of oil and add jeera and mustard seeds.
When they start to crackle add the garlic and the onions and fry till onion is light brown.
Now add the fried bitter gourd and the other masalas and saute.
Simmer the gas flame and keep the pan lid closed for about 10 mins.
Now add a pinch of hind and garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
It tastes yummy with moong ki daal and rice!!
