Karelas Stuffed With Egg Masala 

This dish is truly sikandalous ! I conjured up the recipe at 10 in the morning, so I can't even blame this outrageous combination on alcohol ! What it turned out to be was delicious . Karelas have never tasted so good.

6 Medium Sized Karelas.
For The Stuffing:
Mustard Oil.
1 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds.
Few Curry Leaves.
Chopped Green Chilies.
1 Onion Chipped.
1 Large Tomato Chopped.
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
1/2 Teaspoon Ginger Paste.
1 Teaspoon Sambar Powder.
1/2 Teaspoon Sauf Powder.
1.5 Teaspoons Dhania Powder.
2 Large Eggs Whipped.

For The Gravy:
1 Large Onion - Chopped.
2 Tomatoes Pureed.
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
1/2 Teaspoon Ginger Paste.
1 Teaspoon Red Chili Powder.
1/2 Teaspoon Garam Masala.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi.
Balance of the Stuffing.

Make Egg Masala Filling:
1. Scrape and salt karelas after making a slit . Remove seeds.Wash well after 15 minutes.Pat dry.
2. Heat mustard oil , splutter mustard seeds , then tip in torn curry leave and green chilies. After 10 -20 seconds add ginger garlic and then onions . Lightly brown onions , add tomatoes along with all masalas .Cook on low till tomatoes are soft.
3. Whip up eggs , add to this masala and proceed to make a dry egg bhurji.Taste and adjust flavors.
4. Stuff karelas with this egg masala , lightly tie and saute with minimum oil on low till done but firm.
5. Save the egg masala thats leftover.

Make Gravy:
6. Heat oil , add onions, garlic ginger , saute till onions are soft , now add in chili powder , haldi and salt , cook covered till your gravy is done. Add garam masala .Taste .
7. To the gravy add sauteed karels and simmer for 4-5 minutes for karelas to take in gravy flavors , also add in balance egg masala . You are looking for a luga lipta dry gravy here .

This was delectable ! Will be made very often for certain.
