Amrit asked for this recipe.
For those who don’t know what Keema and Karalay means: keema means finely minced meat, and karalay is bitter gourd.
If you are totally vegetarian forego the meat. If you don’t eat beef or mutton you can use minced breast of chicken.
For the recipe I had the following ingredients:
300 grams Keema
4 bitter gourd
Salt and red chillies (the amount you like)
Haldi (turmeric) 1tea spoon
Coriander 2 tea spoons
2 large size onions
2 large size tomatoes
Garlic 8 large cloves minced
Ginger 1 inch piece minced
Olive oil, or any oil you use. Oil 2 serving spoons, or as you like
First thing is to scrape the outer skin from the bitter gourds while whole.
Sauté one onion in oil till light brown. Add minced garlic, and ginger. Fry for a little bit of time. Add turmeric, coriander, red pepper and salt. Fry for a few seconds. Add minced meat. Keep on stirring and break the lumps till it is browned.
