Kantola is a spiky gourd – that looks a little like a small bitter gourd (karela). It is even probably a “relative” of the karela. In the frozen veggie packs, I find them written as an Indian gourd. I had not tasted this vegetable – was introduced to it when I started cooking here. It is similar to bitter gourd in taste, probably a little less bitter.

We make a simple roasted vegetable of it. Here is its recipe.
