Bitter Gourd Kofta

Make crispy and creative Bitter gourd Koftas at home! Here’s the recipe in simple and easy steps!


Recipe serving: 4
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

4 pieces Bitter gourd
Oil for deep fry

For Filling:
½ teaspoon Cumin seeds
½ teaspoon Coriander seeds
1 piece dry chili
1 teaspoon Dry Mango powder (optional )
½ inch ginger
3 teaspoon poppy seed
1 tablespoon flour
Salt to taste


Peel off the outer skin of the bitter gourd and slice it through the middle. Remove the seeds from the inside and scoop out the flesh ¬– the white part of the bitter gourd – (however, be careful so that the outer layer remains intact) and mix it well with all the ingredients – cumin seed, coriander seed, dry chili, dry mango powder, ginger, poppy seed and salt as per given the ratio – and make a paste. Now fill the bitter gourds (after scooping it out from the inside, it will take the shape of what would look like a cupped hand!) with this paste. Then, make a batter of flour and deep fry it in white oil.
