  • 1 cup low fa curd (dahi)
  • 2 tbsp besan (Bengal gram flour)
  • 1 tsp oil

  • 1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves
  • salt to taste

  1. Add 1 1/2 cups of water, besan and curd in a bowl and mix well. Whisk well so that no lumps are formed and paste is smooth.
  2. Heat some oil in a pan on medium flame and add onion. Saute till onions turn light brown.
  3. Add bitter gourd pieces and salt to cook for 3 to 5 minutes.Bitter gourd pieces should turn soft.
  4. Add besan-curd-water mix, salt, ginger-green chilli paste and mix them well. Bring this mix to boil. Stir in between.
