Dish-A-Day: 04/19/2012 - Kakarakaya Pappu / Bitter Gourd Dal / Karela Dal

Prologue: Go here.

04/19/2012: Kakarakaya Pappu / Bitter Gourd Dal / Karela Dal - the only dishes that I ever made with Bitter Gourd are Fry, Curry or stuffed Masala. Never knew one could make Dal out of it. I was too tired and sleepy to cook anything one day. It felt easier to make dal out of this vegetable rather than make curry. And it turned out pretty good. A bit of bitterness still stung to the tongue when eaten, but I think that is what this vegetable is supposed to do.
Recipe: Similar to any of the dal recipes I have posted. Instead of using the vegetable from that recipe substitute with Bitter Gourd.
