Cut the melons in half lengthwise and scoop out the pulp and seeds to create a pocket on the inside of each half. Set the melon aside.
Put 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the onion
and cook for 4 minutes, or until the onion is soft and golden. Add the tomato, curry leaves
, garam masala
, mustard seeds
, ground turmeric and season with salt. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly and then spoon into bitter melon
halves. Put the halves back together and tie with some kitchen string.
