Mexican Stuffed bitter gourd recipe - Bitter gourd recipes - Snack recipes

I wanted to try stuffed bitter gourd for quite some time. But was scared of masala coming out when frying. I brought cooking twine (thread) recently so decide to try out. Then next question is what to use for stuffing. I thought of mexican because with loads of onion and tomatoes in it will reduce the bitterness of bitter gourd. This came out very nice. I have used Lemon garlic flavoured bread crumbs but plain ones work as well.

Bitter gourd - 1
White onion - 1/2 (chopped finely)
Tomatoes - 2-3 (chopped finely)
Salt to taste
Olive oil - 2 tablespoon
Avocado - 1/2 (cubed)
cooked Corn - 1/2 cup
Black beans - 1/4 cup
Coriander leaves - 2 tablespoon (finely chopped)
Bread crumbs - 1/4 cup
Corn flour - 2 tablespoon
All purpose flour - 2 tablespoon
Pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon


Wash and soak Black beans overnight. cook it with salt. Drain away the water. Keep it aside.
Scrap the skin of bitter gourd. Divide it into 2 remove the seeds. Cook Bitter gourd with required salt. Drain the water and keep it aside
