Hi!
I do like karela, so I think I will try it. It looks good! But I want to know about the coconut. I can’t tell if this is fresh or dried coconut slices you’re using. Can you comment on this? Thanks!

You can use either fresh coconut square bite sized pieces or frozen ones. Dried ones won’t give exact same taste. I have tried using both fresh and frozen ones.
