Bitter gourd Curry

This is one of my  Mom's specials, which my husband and I like so much. So I got the recipe from her and tried it myself, and it turned out so well that we now makes it once in a while. This is made almost like a Kerala fish curry using coconut milk. So for those of you who likes Bitter gourd and a spicy coconut milk curry, this is a must try curry.
1 Bitter gourd - big
2 Tomatoes
1"piece of Ginger
3 Shallots
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1tbs coriender powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
Few curry leaves
Salt to taste
1 tbs coconut oil
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
Cut the Bitter gourd and tomatoes into small pieces. Take a heavy bottom pan and put the Bitter gourd and tomatoes  pieces along with ginger and all the spices with one cup of water and salt. Cook on medium heat with the pan covered till the bitter gourd is almost done. Now add the coconut milk and simmer for a few more minutes till the gravy thickens. In another pan heat the oil and brown the shallots and crisp the curry leaves and add this to the curry.
This goes well with rice.
