My Cuisine’s BitterGourd Rice

Posted by Annita on April 6, 2006

And my first post after reaching home.Thanks for all your wishes,I had a real nice trip.But its very hot out here and my kid is having a hard time in getting adjusted with everything.Still it feels good to be back home.Enjoying amma’s cooking and relaxing ..
Yesterday my amma plucked some fresh Paavakka(Bittergourd)which were grown in our compound.They were really handsome with that fresh pale green look, rather than the green bitter looking ones which were available to us. I thought of trying out something new and different and to surprise my parents.Thus I prepared My Cuisine’s BitterGourd Rice from my “Must Try ” list .

Homegrown Bittergourd

I’ve just added some curry leaves to her recipe,and all the rest remains same
It goes like…

Medium sized Bitter gourd -2
Medium Sized Onion-2
Red Chillies – 6
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed
Ghee – 2 tbsp
Grate the bittergourd and wash it thoroughly for 2-3 minutes and reserve.Grind together Onion and red chillies to a coarse paste.Heat oil in a pan ,add curry leaves,bittergourd and salt ,and fry well till the color starts to change.Now add the onion paste into it and simmer for 10 mts stirring occasionally.You can pour in oil if needed.Switch it off when done and add 1 tsp of ghee into it.
Mix it well with 3 cups of cooked basmati rice.Pour the rest of ghee into it and serve hot with raita.

BitterGourd Rice

Eventhough I followed exact recipe,it gave a slight different result ,but tastes great.(Compare it with Raji’s).

Thanks Raji for such wonderful recipe.

  1. Hey Annita,
    Bittergourd rice new to me.

    It was new to me too Vineela.I tried it for first time.

    Hey,I've seen some amazing recipes in your blog..As i was a bit busy with my kid,I couldn't comment out there..

    Great work,Vineela


  2. Annita: Annita, take care of your kid, give him water(even boil the mineral water), give him coconut water (elaneer) and freshly sqeezed juices. I had very tough time when i took my kid(was only 9 months then) last year to India. I had very nice time, though he didn't (was always sick till i reached here back)
    I love that light color pavakkai. Rice recipe. keep them coming!!!

    Thanks Karthi.I am giving him lots of  water and juices now.Its very sad to see him suffering though..

    Hi Annita…just left a comment on ‘MyCuisine’ as well with my queries on Bittergourd Rice. I made it a couple of days back and was quite disappointed that the rice tunred out to be very bitter. Now that I think of it, I feel I didn’t wash the bittergourd well after grating it. Would that have made the rice too bitter to eat? I think that must be it! I love ‘Karelas’ and was dying to try out this recipe, but it didn’t come out well :( Have to try it out again soon…did you scrape the bittergourd or did you just grate them rightaway?

    Hope you are making the most of your time here in India at home :)

    video clips, this website could undeniably be one of the best
    in its field. Great blog!
