Karela or bitter gourd is mostly the least desirable vegetable despite its many health benefits. Bitter gourd is full of fibers and is rich source of iron and some essential nutrients. Generally we make stuffed karela but we have made sliced karela chips and have improved the health quotient by replacing deep frying with air frying.
