As I was going to through my to do list in this balmy April evening with the wind ruffling my tresses through the open window, I saw the little red flags waving and beckoning me sit down and take a more closer notice.That is when I realised that the count down to the WOW Karela competition hosted by Creative Pooja is well under way. I was thrilled by her choice of my favorite vegetable. I love bitter gourd. I always love this particular recipe that is not only amazing and delicious with that flavours.When ever I feel like preparing a very traditional and authentic cuisine relating to my home state. I feel very emotional and living up to the high standards sometimes stops me from experimenting too often. But this karala bhajja is absolutely simple to whip up. A straight forward side dish goes well with nice dal and rice.
Sorisa batta (Mustard paste) is very popular in Odisha and adds a rather strong flavour to the dish, the above kalara bhajja has got very contrasting flavours of bitter kalaras and spicy mustard paste. A bit likes the Yin & Yang of Taoism.
