1). Wash and cut the bitter-guard into two halfs. Trim the head and tail, discard the seeds. Dice the pavakkai to medium size pieces. Soak them in salted water for at least 10 minutes, to reduce the bitterness.
2). Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and let it splutter. Then add urad dal, channa dal and saute till it turns golden color. Add onions along with salt and saute till they turn translucent.
