Karathe god nonche(bitter gourd sweet pickle)

Bitter gourd is one of my fav vegetable and with that I prepare lots of spicy, sweet and bitter dishes.  My grandmom used to prepare sweet pickle with Karathe.  After a very long time I am wanted to eat the sweet pickle so I tried it today.   I like this pickle very much because  of the   bitterness of karathe,  sweetness  of jaggery  and  the sourness from tamarind.   This pickle is an unique one.


Karathe (bitter gourd)                                    2

Red chilly powder                                           4 tsp
