Bitter Melon Stir-Fry Recipe + Bitter Melon Tacos

The Ayurveda Experience October 17, 2016

Bitter melon or bitter gourd (karela in Hindi) is a bitter, dark green vegetable with prickly points all over it. It cleanses the liver and is known to be beneficial for those with hyperglycemia and Type 2 Diabetes.

According to esteemed Ayurvedic practitioner Vasant Lad, ‘Bitter is better for the liver.’

In India, bitter melon is traditionally served as a side dish with Indian flat tortillas known as rotis or chappatis. Here is a traditional stir-fry recipe and a fun variation for bitter melon tacos.

Shopping for Bitter Melon

A few notes about bitter melon. You’ll find this vegetable in asian grocery stores and some super markets. When selecting bitter melon choose ones that look tender. If you find it has really pink seeds inside that means it’s over-ripe. Scoop out the seeds and toss them in the trash. Brown seeds are okay.

Now enjoy the video demonstration and let us know how your tacos turn out!
