Stuffed karela with aloo is a classic Indian dish. This dish may be a challenge for people not already familiar with Indian food or some of the more interesting vegetables that come out of Asia. The karela vegetable, also known as bitter gourd, is a bit of an acquired taste as it is extremely bitter, hence its very literal name. Once you learn to love the taste of karela though, this dish will quickly become one of your favorites.

Health Benefits

Karela, or bitter gourd is a wonderful vegetable that is primarily eaten for its health benefits and its taste. Some of karela’s more important health benefits are:

  • Functioning as a blood purifier thanks to karela’s antioxidant and antimicrobial properties which remove toxins from the blood.
  • Helping people achieve weight loss by stimulating the liver to the point that it begins to secrete bile which is necessary for metabolizing fat inside the body.
