Wash,Peel and deseed the bitter melon (do not throw away any peels or seed)
Mix the peels,seeds, and all the above ingredients in a blender and pulse until it becomes a fine paste.
Add about 3 tbs oil in a non stick pan and cook the masala paste until the oil separates from the paste.
Stuff the karela with the paste and tie with a thread or kitchen twine so it does not leak while cooking.
In a fry pan add 4 tbs oil and add stuffed karela and fry on medium to low heat while frequently turning until all sides are dark.
Serve with Roti
