ABOUT KARELE KA HALWA RECIPE

Karela has various therapeutic properties and it is one of the healthiest vegetables. My mom-in-law used to make a variety of dishes with bitter gourd during my pregnancy and post delivery. This halwa is one of them. She would add extra ghee and dry fruits but I have reduced the quantity.
