Karelas Stuffed With Peas

At first this combination of peas and karelas looks odd - but if you think about it , it's a perfect balance of flavors - some bitter , some sweet and lots of deliciousness .

6 Karelas - Make a long slit , remove seeds , scrape the skin , retain the scraped skin.
100 Grams Shelled Peas .
1/2 Onion - Chopped.
1 Small Tomato Chopped
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
Haldi .

In boiling water add 1 teaspoon sugar and 1 salt , plunge cleaned karelas in into the water and allow them to simmer 3-4 minute , then strain and dry  Karelas. Meanwhile make peas as per your recipe , I sauteed in a masala of tomato onions garlic and the spice mentioned. I also added 1 tablespoon of the scraped skin to this mixture.Cook till peas are done , you can add 2-3 tablespoons water , when done dry the mixture and lightly mash.

Take the peas mixture and stuff karelas , tie with a string as shown and lightly fry in a greased nonstick pan . You just need to lightly brown karelas , initial blanching did most of the cooking ! This recipe is very versatile - go with any stuffing , use leftovers , but do try this once with peas .
