Gluten Free Gujarati Gujarati Shaak/Subjis North Indian Vegan

Karela nu Shaak

Karela is widely used in India and china. This bitter vegetable contains essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, copper, iron, and also vitamins A, b1 and b2. And when you make curry out of this vegetable, you won’t feel the bitterness. Karela can be cooked with other vegetables such as onion, potato and tomato. But I simply love Karela. I love this curry with sweet rotis such as puran poli(vermi) or Jaggery Roti(gud roti)
