How to make Qeema Bharay Karelay


Soak the chana daal (Split Bengal Gram) for a few hours; boil till tender but not mushy and keep aside.

Peel the karelay (bitter-gourd); slit open from one side making a pocket and de-seed.

Thoroughly rub Salt on bitter-gourd and let it sit for 15 minutes; rinse carefully under running tap water to get rid of the salt completely and pat dry.

Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the karela till its light golden; keep aside.

In the same oil sauté the onions.

Now add the minced meat and cook on high heat till the meat is properly cooked.

Turn the heat low; add Ginger Paste, Garlic Paste, and Achar Gosht Masala. Cook for few minutes, using a little water to prevent the masala from getting burnt.

Add tomatoes and ½ cup of water; cook on medium heat with the lid on till all the liquid dries up.

Add the boiled chana daal, fresh coriander, and green chili; do bhunai.

Stuff the bitter gourd with the cooked qeema mix, tie each one with some cotton thread/string and put it on a dum with the leftover qeema. The string will prevent the filling from falling out of the slit.
