Bittergourd Masala

I usually make bittergourd as simple stir fry using sometimes with prawns, but this masala is completely a new dish which is prepared actually for filling and making out some paratha with this bittergourd masala, but finally me and DH finished them with rice and boiled eggs also needless to say that this bittergourd masala goes terrible awesome along with rotis too,i never tried adding ginger garlic paste along with bittergourd and also i used Poppy seeds & quinoa spice powder while making this masala..This masala tastes fabulous and we loved it..Since i used poppy seed spice powder, this masala goes directly to Vegetable Marathon - Bittergourd guest hosted by Nithu, event by Anita..

Bittergourd Masala

2cups Bittergourd (chopped very finely)
1no Onion ( big & chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tbsp Poppy seeds & Quinoa spice powder
1/2tsp Coriander powder
Salt
Oil
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
Curry leaves

Heat enough oil, let splutters the mustard seeds and urad dal, add immediately the chopped onions, slit opened green chillies,ginger garlic paste and sauté until the onions turns transculent, add the chopped bittergourd pieces, along with salt and cook until the veggies get half cooked, add the poppy seeds & quinoa spice powder, coriander powder,curry leaves and cook in simmer until the veggies get well cooked(sprinkle water if needed), mash the bittergourd pieces slightly, put off the stove..
