About Bharwan Nariyal Karela

Bharwan nariyal karela or stuffed bitter gourd with coconut is simple yet extremely rich and delicious dish. I have to give the credit for this recipe to my husband who prepared this with the last few ingredients which were there in our pantry during the flood hit days.
