Aloo Uchhe Jhal or Bengali Aloo Karela recipe is a summer staple in most Bengali households. Slices of korola (karela or Bitter Melon) and potatoes are cooked together with some panchphoron (Bengali five spice mix) and served at the beginning of the meal with some rice.
Heat the oil in pressure cooker.
Add panchforon and let it splutter on medium heat.
Then add the sliced bitter gourd and potatoes. Mix everything together.
Add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt & sugar, and mix well. Add the water.
Now fasten the lid of the pressure cooker and allow 2-3 whistles.
Allow the pressure cooker to depresurize on its own. Once done, open the lid to check. The veggies should be cooked properly.
Adjust the consistency of the gravy. If its too runny, let some evaporate by cooking it on high heat.
Serve with rice.
