How to make Stuffed Karela Fry

  1. Scrape the karela lightly. Wash thoroughly. Pat dry and set aside. Make a long slit keep sides intact, remove the seeds. Do not remove if seeds are tender.
  2. Take 1tspn salt and apply on Karelas. Set aside for 20 minutes. Wash off excess salt.
  3. Make a fine paste of onions. In a thick non stick wide vessel add sufficient oil. Fry onion paste on medium flame till you get light golden colour. This takes a bit longer and needs constant stirring. At this stage onion paste will comes together as a ball. Add ginger garlic paste and saut. Add spices and continue to fry for few seconds on low flame. Transfer this mixture to a plate.
  4. Add few spoons of oil to the same vessel and fry Karelas till half done. Transfer to a plate. Divide the onion mixture and stuff in Karelas carefully. Its optional if you want to tie these with thread.
  5. Fry on low flame turning sides till fully cooked.
  6. Serve hot with roti/ parathas.

My Tip:

While frying stuffed Karelas sprinkle little water. The spices dont burn and karelas cooks faster. Fresh ground spices enhance flavours. Select even and medium size karelas. Adjust spices according to ones preference.
