The first thing we all can think about karelas is their bitterness. Believe it or not, karela is a vegetable that is extremely beneficial for diabetics and you can enjoy it more if you acquire the taste for it. This innovative recipe makes use of the peels of the karela which we usually throw away. Wash and chop the peel into small pieces before adding it into the dough. Use the karelas to make the Karela Kadhi.
