Now add in the chopped bitter gourd, fry for 3-4 minutes.
Once the bitter gourd is half cooked, add in the onion and tomato with enough salt.
Cook till the veggies are done, now add in the sambar powder, grated carrots and sugar.
Mix everything well, reduce the heat to low and cook for few more minutes.
Tasty bitter gourd stir-fry is ready to serve. The bitterness will be low because of the tomato and sugar we are adding so this porial makes a good combo with any South Indian lunch.
