KARELE BASARA JI BHAJI ( Sindhi Karele ki Sabzi / Bitter Gourd and Onion Stir-fry )

This karela sabji is the easiest and simplest recipe you could ever make. It does not have any spices, just the karelas and onions. It is eaten with plain rotis and amazingly it tastes so good. A blend of sweet onion and bitter karelas. The only trick is to be careful while adding salt. It has to be just right.(You may add a little white/black pepper if you wish to.)

Karelas ...... 3-4
Onions ...... 2-3 small ( sliced)
Salt ........... to taste
Curd .......... 1 tbsp. (to marinate)
1. Peel and slice the karelas. Marinate them with salt and curd.(preferably overnight)

2. Drain out the water from the karelas and fry them. Set aside
3. In a pan heat a tbsp. of oil and saute the onions until they are pink and translucent.Add just 2 pinches of salt.

4. Add the fried karelas and mix. Sprinkle a little water and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Serve with plain rotis.
