Karela Kachri -Bitter gourd cooked and stir fried with Indian spices

Karela kachri -Bitter gourd is among the few vegetables which are very healthy but are disliked by most of the people.It has numerous health benefits,it detoxes the blood,helps in diabetes as it controls the blood sugar level.

But as Me and my family like karela,so I often use it during the season,personally I like stuffed karela the most . But my family don't like too much spices so I often try different recipes to make with bitter gourd/ karela. You can make stir fry, poori, paratha,fritters and so many things with karela.

But as Bharwa karela takes little extra time to stuff and cook,so sometimes I make this karela kachri sabzi which taste almost the same but doesn't need that much time to cook.I prefer to use bitter gourd with out peeling the skin but you can peel or scrape karela if you wish.
