Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

This is from the book Delicious Diabetic low cal recipes by Tarla Dalal. What I like most about this recipe is that it makes use of the peel of karela which most of the people discard. Wash and chop the peel into small pieces before adding it to the dough. Enjoy this recipe and use the karelas to make karela kadhi(bittergourd curry)!
