I add onion first before adding the karela, no cashews, then at the end I add fresh mango slices to add the sweetness - my Gujarati MIL recipe

This was my first time trying karela. What a joy! It''s a beautifully fragrant dish. I did substitute black walnuts for cashews and parsley for coriander leaves - simply as it is what I had on hand. Also, omitted the sugar, used fresh turmeric, and used hazelnut oil. Paired with black rice.
