Bitter Gourd Chutney

A recipe for all bitter gourd lovers...This doesn't mean that the recipe is very bitter...no its not so...This chutney is a bit bitter and tastes good.

Bitter gourd-1/2 of a big one.
Coconut-1/2 cup
Onion-1/4 piece
Tamarind- small pea shaped ball.
Salt to taste
Chilly powder-1/4 tsp
Curry leaves- 4 leaves.

Method Of Preparation:
1. Cut the bitter gourd and onion to small pieces.
2. Heat a wok and fry the ingredients without oil till coconut turns light brown.Do this on low flame, else you will burn it.
3. Once done, cool it and grind it coarsely using very little water.




** This chutney is slightly  bitter and very slightly sweet...
