The kerela masala is a delicious dry recipe masala made with bitter gourd. This dish is native to Pakistan. Bitter melons are the most bitter of all vegetables on earth and as a child, I hated the bitter gourd, but with a more developed palate, I have come to appreciate it.

Health Benefits

Boil bitter melon leaves or fruits in water and consume it daily to fight infections build immunity.

The benefits of bitter melon juice also include treatment for type 2 diabetes. Bitter melon contains a plant-based insulin compound that helps reduce blood sugar levels. Despite its benefits for diabetics, those not affected by the disease can also consume bitter melons to stay healthy and fit. This vegetable also contains considerable amounts of fiber, which helps relieve constipation.
