Karela Stir Fry | Karele Ka Bhujiya | Bitter gourd Stir Fry

Posted by

Not many people are fond of karela because of its bitter taste. I used to wonder why would anyone eat karela? It’s so bitter in taste. Then I realized could be because of its health benefits and it is easy to digest. I am not fond of eating karela but still, I make karela because of its health benefits. Other than karela stir-fry I love karele ka bharta, the tangy karele ki sabji which my mom cooks.
