Karella stir fry

Bitter gourd stir fry – Diabetes buster with its natural best

During my recent visit to Sri Lanka,  I was served this dish by my sister, Lakmali which instantly won my taste buds as well as my heart.

I loved the crunchiness of the Karella slices despite its mild bitterness and the coconut that gave a very pleasant sweetness to compensate the bitter flavour.

The best news is that while making this stir fry, karella is in its natural form and intact with all its medicinal values. Well known as the world’s best antidote for diabetes, bitter gourd,  eaten raw or half cooked like in this dish, flushes out the excess sugar and toxins in the system and purifies it.

This dish could be eaten on its own or as a side dish with steamed rice.

So, let’s make it:




What you need: karavila2-300x175

 Light green, very tender bitter gourd 3
Freshly scraped/grated coconut a handful
Salt to taste
Pepper powder 1 tsp
Onions 1 large
Curry leaves and two pinches of turmeric
Oil 1 tbsp

  How to make :




  • Slice up the bitter gourd very thinly.
