Bitter Melon or Karela known for its bitter taste and for its ability to fight diabetes. Normally I remove the seeds and use this vegetable in juicing, getting all the nutrients. Using it in a bread recipe was a delicious move. You could also fry the bread and make puri’s and serve with dal. I served it with cauliflower and sambar.
3 Karela skins shredded and soaked in salt for about 15 mins
1 cup Bajri flour
1 cup Jowhar flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp sooji (semolina)
1tpsp ground flaxmeal ( optional)
2 tbsp besan flour
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp cayenne powder ( reduce if needed)
Make the dough with all the ingredients in warm water and a pinch of salt.
Since this is pretty low in gluten, it make be hard to roll out. You can put the dough balls between plastic wrap to help if needed.
