Karathe pathrodo ( bitter gourd pathrodo)
I learnt this recipe from my friend Priya R Shenoy, it was her great grand mom’s recipe. Its is really tasty and gives and really lip smacking.
· Bitter gourd 2 no’s
· tamarind pulp 2 tsp
· Mustard 1 tsp
· urad dal 2 tsp
· hing powder ¼ tsp
· red chilly powder ½ tbsp
· salt to taste
Make medium sized circles of bitter gourd. Apply salt, chilli powder and hing and keep it 15 min. Heat coconut oil in pan season with mustard seeds, methi seeds and urad dal. Fry urad dal till it becomes light brown. To this add marinated bitter gourd and tamarind and mix well.
Then cook on low flame till they’re cooked and gravy coats the bitter gourd pieces nicely. Turn off and serve as side dish for rice.
