Hot Tips:

  1. Try to use only required amount of oil only for frying cos after frying karelas the oil turns bitter and dark too so its no more in reuse for anything else then karelas only.
  2. Keep the karela's seeds in the . when u fry they also got fried and the crunchy nutty taste is awesome in the dish .
