Time 20 min
Bitter gourd 2-3 medium size
Grated fresh coconut 1/2 cup
Asafoetida 1/4  tsp
Red chili powder 3/4tsp
Ginger garlic paste 1/4 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 intact.
Heat oil in pan add asafoetida, turmeric powder, cumin seeds. After cumin seeds crackles Then add cut bitter gourd. Mix well. Do not add water. Cover the lid and cook for 5-6 min till it becomes tender. Switch off the flame. Allow it to cool. In a separate bowl take red chili powder, ginger garlic paste, coconut, salt, cumin coriander powder, mix well. Stuff this  mixture to cooked bitter gourd. 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.
