Stuffed Bitter Gourd. Last year i had cooked achari bharwa bhindi by using my MIL's pickle and tried to use the same ingredients in bitter gourd and it turned out equally tasty. Though the stuffed bitter gourd may retain some of the bitterness, but it is sure to be relished with roti and rice too. I always prefer baby bitter gourd because in that bitterness is very less and it taste good..
4 bitter gourd (Karela)
1 large onion, 1 green chilli, 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Pickle masala (any pickle)
Salt and Oil as requires.
Wash the bitter gourd well and dry on a towel until completely dry. Make a slits in each and remove the seeds. keep them aside. In a large mixing bowl, add all the above ingredients and make a mixture. Then stuff the prepared mixture into the bitter gourd. In a pan, heat the oil and place all the bitter gourd.
Cover and cook on a low flame till the bitter gourd are done (about 20 to 25 minutes). Remove the lid and allow to crispen. Serve with hot Roti's.
