More Bitter Love Fermented Black Beans and Karaila

Stir Fry Karaila with Fermented Black Beans (Cynthia Nelson photo)

Hi Everyone,

Calling all my fellow lovers of the bitter melon we call Karaila. You’re going to want to try this recipe.

Apart from the outstanding flavour of this dish, it is another case of recognizing how a two-step cooking process of Karaila yields a texture that is meaty and extremely satisfying. If you have ever made Kalounjie (stuffed Karaila) or tried the Karaila curry I have talked about before (the whole karaila is browned and then curried with coconut milk), you will know what I am referring to. In this case, it is a stir fry, however, the vegetable is sliced and blanched first…..
