Bitter Guard Curry

I like this curry very much. Mixing this curry with rice with a tsp of melted butter - MMMM its delicious. Here is the recipe.

  1. Bitter guard - 3 or a cup (chopped into small cubes)
  2. Oil - 2 tbsp
  3. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Curry Powder - 1/2 tsp
  6. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  7. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  8. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Take a pan, pre heat 1 tbsp oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add urad dhall and asafoetida powder and fry it to golden brown. Now add the chopped bitterguard to it. Add required amount of water, salt, turmeric powder and curry powder and let it cook for 15 mts. If the bitter guard is fully cooked (do not mash), turn off the stove and drain the excess water. Now turn the stove to low and add the remaining oil and let it fry in the low flame for another 10 mts. maximumm. This will become crispier. This is also a side dish. Bitter guard is good for diabetic patients.

Eating this on plain hot rice with ghee sounds very tasty. I love to eat bitter gourd curry with curd rice!
