Karela With Prawns (bitter Gourd And Prawns)
Ok, So I know this is one vegetable that is an acquired taste. I have never tried to convert someone to liking the taste of the very misunderstood Karela. But, for those of you who love it, like me, this is one dish that is yum yum yummy! These tiny prawns are not easy to come by where I live and get sold out even before I go to the market. My very friendly (and sometimes over priced) Fisher monger calls me whenever they are in. I bought a big batch, which will mostly be converted to a filling for my Prawn Rissoies (recipe coming soon) but I couldn't resist throwing some in here too. The mint gives it a fresh flavour as the chillies give it a little kick.
So, if you are planning a Karela dish some day and happen to spot some prawns at your local market, do give this dish a try. I'm sure you will like it :)
