Uluva Thoran (fenugreek Seeds And Coconut Stir Fry)
This is one bitter recipe that would make you love bitter gourd. I began cooking this because of my mother-in-law who is a diabetic. Her dietician recommended her to drink water that had fenugreek seeds soaked in it. So I used to soak these seeds in 1 glass of water every day. After she drank the water I would collect the seeds in a box. My mother told me I could make a gruel with broken wheat and these seeds but I found that boring. So finally I went ahead and made this thoran/stir fry with the seeds collected over a week.
It was still very bitter so I added some vinegar, chili powder and salt to make this dish edible enough. But my mom-in-law all throughout kept saying she did not mind the bitterness. So if you can take in the bitterness or have diabetic patients at home, you can give this recipe a try.
