Even though disliked by almost all, karela has a lot of vitamins and also certain minerals like iron, copper and potassium which makes it a great option for diabetics to have. Karela tikkis are one such healthy option. These tikkis are made with peas, low fat paneer and other veggies, cooked in very little oil, making it really healthy.

A dough flavored with bitter gourd, garlic and Indian spices makes delicious and healthy theplas!
