Bitter Gourd Paratha Recipe

Bitter Gourds or Bitter Melons, or Karelas are packed with nutrients, reduce blood sugar, have cancer-fighting properties, aid in weight loss, and are delicious if cooked well. Here I share a recipe for making Bitter Gourd Paratha.

Bitter Gourd Paratha Recipe

Ingredients for making Bitter Gourd Paratha

  • 5-6 Bitter Gourds finely chopped in a chopper
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 10 Grams Ginger (Finely chopped or grated)
  • 1 Green chilly (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat flour
  • ½ cup Gram Flour
  • ½ cup Ragi Flour
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1 Table Spoon Kasoori Methi (You can skip this or add fresh fenugreek too)

Directions to Prepare Bitter Gourd Rotis

  1. In a big bowl, add all the flours (It’s alright if you only have wheat flour). Mix Salt in the flours and then add all of the chopped ingredients to the bowl.
  2. Knead it just like the regular flour.
  3. Make small balls out of this, and then use a rolling pin to make chapatis out of these.
  4. Cook on a griddle or Tawa and add little ghee or oil while cooking it.
  5. If you are in a hurry, you could mix all the ingredients and make a Dosa batter. Instead of kneading the flour, add some water and make Karela Dosas.

Here’s a Tip: Have the Karela Rotis or Dosas with white homemade butter or Mango Chutney.
