Karela Roti

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.
