The first thing we all can think about karelas is their bitterness. But karela is extremely beneficial for diabetics and one can enjoy it more if you acquire the taste for it. This innovative recipe makes use of the peels of the karela which we usually throw away. Wash and chop the peels into small pieces before adding it to the dough.
