Bitter Gourd / Karela Bhaji with Groundnut

Time 15 min
Bitter gourd 3-4 medium size
Groundnut powder 2-3 tbsp
Asafoetida ½  tsp
Red chili powder / Kolhapuri kanda lasun chatney 2 tsp
Coriander cumin powder ¼ tsp
Cumin seeds ½ tsp

Clean the bitter gourd. Chop into size of 2-3 inch keeping the round shape with cut at one side.
Heat oil in pan add asafetida, turmeric powder, cumin seeds and little salt. Then add cut bitter gourd. Mix well. Do not add water. Cover the lid and cook for 6-7 min till it becomes tender. Switch off the flame. Allow it to cool. In a separate bowl take Red chili powder / Kolhapuri kanda lasun chatney add groundnut powder, remaining salt, (keep in mind that u have added salt while frying bittergourd)  cumin coriander powder, mix well. Apply this mixture to cooked bitter gourd.  If possible u can do stuffing. Now heat the oil in pan, add stuffed bitter gourd, fry for about 7-8 min on low flame. Do not add water. Meanwhile stir well to avoid burning.
U need to add little more oil to avoid adding water. If u add water its taste differs so I avoid.
