Karela is also known as Bitter melon or bitter gourd. It grows in tropical areas like East Africa and Asia. There are several species of Karela. I used the course and rough looking ones for my recipe. Karelas are supposed to be very good for diabetics – however if you use my Masala Stuffed Karela or Bitter Melon curry recipe for a diabetic, please exclude the jaggery. This recipe is a great favourite of mine.
