Bitter though it is, karela has a unique taste that transforms it into a delicacy if prepared in the right ways.

Here, an innovative combination of bitter gourd, onions and colourful capsicums are sautéed with a traditional tempering, resulting in a flavourful and aromatic subzi that goes well with rice and rotis.

Although prepared with everyday ingredients and the simplest of cooking methods, the Karela and Capsicum Subzi is a super hit mainly because of the thoughtful combination of vegetables.

Try other karela subzis like Karela Bateta Nu Shaak , Masala Bharwan Karela and Onion and Karela Subzi .

Deep fried karela cooked in a tasty tomato onion gravy. The dish is so well done that you cannot detect the real bitterness of karela.
