My grandma always taught me how to make use of peels and leftovers. They were so innovative in doing so many things and waste nothing. The peels of karela contain more vitamins and nutrients. We should try to make something out of them.

Sprinkle salt liberally on karela peels and leave them for a few hours.
Drain the water and spread them on a cloth or a plastic sheet to dry in the sun. Store in a dry container. Fry them when required.
Goes well with : Fote Bhugi Khichni

Tip: In winter when we have no sunlight, dry them in the microwave. Spread them in small portions on a paper towel and microwave them.

Pin for later
