Sauteed Bitter gourd / Karola Bhaja

Bitter gourd - 3
Oil - 1 tbsp
Nigella Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - a pinch
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp

Wash the whole bitter gourd and dry well. Cut into very thin roundels.

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet. Add the nigella seeds.

Then add the bitter gourd slices, turmeric, salt and red chili powder. Toss well. Cook on medium heat, stirring frequently. If it looks very dry, half a tbsp of oil.

Once the bitter gourd turns brown and crispy, it is done. Serve as a side dish.
