KARELA & CORIANDER JUICE



Karela ( bitter gourd ), as we all know, has lot of medicinal properties and is very rich in iron. One should try to consume some amount of karela in our diet, especially those suffering with diabetes.
The juice of coriander( also known as cilantro) is beneficial in producing vitamin A, B1, B2, C and iron. It is also highly beneficial in treating digestive disorders such as indigestion, nausea, dysentery, hepatitis and colitis.
Here is a recipe with the blend of both the juices. Some people find it difficult to consume karela juice because of the bitter taste, but when blended with coriander, lime and salt it is not as bad as we think.

Ingredients:
Karela .... 1
Coriander leaves ... handful
Lime juice ........ 1-2 tbsps. ( as per your taste)
Salt .................. 1/2 tsp.
Water ............... 1 small glass.

Method:
1. Wash and cut the karela into pieces.( do not peel)
2. Blend it with all the above ingredients.
3. Strain and serve chilled.
