[Optional] Prep the bittergourd if you want to remove the excess bitterness. See tips.
Heat oil in a saute pan, add the chopped bittergourd and fry until it turns golden, about 8-10 minutes.
Add the ground masala paste, mix well and cook for 4-5 minutes on medium-low flame.
The spice paste will start of a little wet but once cooked on low flame, it will dry up and coat the veggie.
