Karela Theplas

The first thing that comes to your mind, when you hear karela is "bitter", but trust me; this bitter vegetable is extremely beneficial for diabetes, as it helps to keep your sugar levels under control and your diabetes in check. This extremely innovative recipe is made from the peels of the karela, which we usually tend to throw away.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Makes: 10 servings


Whole Wheat Flour- 1 cup

Bajra Flour- ¼ cup

Bitter Gourd Peels (Finely Chopped) - ½ cup

Grated Garlic- ½ tsp

Turmeric Powder- ½ tsp

Chili Powder- 1 tsp

Coriander Powder - 1 tsp

Oil- 2 tsp

Salt- to taste


• Mix wheat flour, bajra flour, karela, garlic, turmeric, chili and coriander powder in a bowl.

• Knead the mixture into a firm dough using enough water.

• Divide the dough into 10 equal parts.
