Bitter Gourd Curry

As the name suggests this vegetable is certainly bitter in taste. But we should agree that the bitter is the better as it helps in good digestion just like fenugreek seeds which are also bitter in taste and are packed with full supply of vitamins A, B1, B2 and C.

I made a very easy and simple bitter gourd curry.

Here are the ingredients I used:

  • 3 cups Bitter Gourd, seeds removed and cut into tiny pieces
  • 3 tsp home-made Curry Powder
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Turmeric
  • Salt as required


Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add the bitter gourd pieces, salt and turmeric and mix well.

Cover and let the curry cook for some time until it becomes crunchy. Keep the flame on low setting. Keep stirring now and then.

When the curry looks cooked or becomes little crunchy, add the curry powder and mix well. Remove the cover and leave it for some time on low flame.

After it turns little brownish turn off the flame and let the curry stand for a while. Then transfer to a serving bowl or plate. Serve with rice and ghee (optional).

Believe me, it not at all bitter in taste. It tasted so yummy that everyone wanted for a second round for the first time.

I am sending this over to Pooja’s wonderful event “Vegetable of the Week -Bitter Gourd”.
