Cut the bitter gourd into two lengthwise, remove the seeds and cut into small pieces. Wash and drain.

In a pan, add the bitter gourd pieces, diced onions, Curry powder and 1 cup water and bring to boil.

Cook until the bitter gourd pieces are cooked and soft.

Now add the salt and tamarind paste and bring to boil.
