Another favourite dish of mine which is a passed down recipe from Mom. Although, I don't get the awesomeness of this dish when I cook it, I try my best to mimic the recipe and ingredients to achieve the lost taste...
The dishes pictured here are karathe thalasani,thendle thalasani, cabbage upkari and dalithoy, rice.
2 medium sized bitter gourd /kaarathe
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 onions,thinly sliced
2 green chilies, finely chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp tamarind paste
Salt to taste
a few curry leaves
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
2 tbsp oil
Cut the bitter gourd into half length wise. Slice along the width of the pieces as thin as you can.
Heat oil in a kadai and season with mustard seeds,, garlic,curry leaves, green chillies, gourd pieces and onions and saute till the bitter gourd and onions softens. Add 1 cup of water. Cover the kadai with the lid and cook this dish is completely cooked and evaporate most of the liquid.
