Karela-Kheera Bharta (Boiled Bitter Gourd- Cucumber Salad)



karela-kheera bharta
Alloo bharta is loved by one and all. You have probably tried my karela-alloo bharta. Let's add a little twist to the recipe with the addition of kheera or cucumber.

This secret ingredient is available in plenty these days, and most of us enjoy it in salad form. I love cucumbers. Just sprinkle little black salt over chopped cucumber pieces and enjoy.

Okay let's come back to the recipe.

shalgam bharta



The karela alloo bharta recipe was shared by my Bengali aunt, who is a classic cook and has shared a number of delectable recipes with me. Lucky me!

This time I tried adding cucumber to this recipe. Does the result disappoint? Not at all. In fact, I loved the addition of kheera in the recipe, though nobody except me was able to guess the secret ingredient.

khatta meetha karela recipe


Ingredients
1 Karela
1 cucumber
2 potatoes
1- onion
1 green chilly or red chilly
coriander leaves
1/4 tsp mustard oil
Black salt
Salt
turmeric

Procedure
karela-aloo bharta


  1. Boil karela, potatoes, and cucumber together with little salt and turmeric. Water should be just enough to soak half the ingredients. We do not need the water stock, as it may be bitter.
  2. Two whistles and you're done. You may even go for a third whistle.
  3. Upon cooling, take out the ingredients. Mash the boiled karela, aloo, and kheera with hands.
  4. Since kheera releases water, so this bharta will be a little flowy compared to karela aloo bharta.
  5. Nevertheless, add chopped onion and green chilly or red chilly powder if you want it a little spicy. I didn't add any chilly.
  6. Sprinkle black salt, mustard oil and mix.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves. I even added a few mint leaves.

Punjabi Atta Biscuits With Jaggery: Organic Whole Wheat Cookies Without Baking Powder, Soda

Get the cookie confidence with me!! Travel the journey of organic, chemical-free baking without baking powder, soda with me.

If you think of biscuits, you are almost certain to travel back in time to your childhood. Like me, you, too, have some fond "atta biscuit" memories, right? My atta biscuit nostalgia reminds me of my childhood when I would visit my mama (maternal uncle) and he would order a batch of whole wheat cookies from a local baker. The biscuits were then packed in a newspaper and I would indulge in them the most. In fact, we all fell in love with these typical atta biscuits and would bring tins of the same back home. What was so special about these biscuits with whole wheat flour was a hint of black cardamom powder that lent these a distinct flavor. I have grown up now - almost into my 30s, but my love for these nostalgic cookies remains the same.

After I started baking cookies at home, these atta biscuits have been on my mind, but I did not have the right equi…
