  • Boil the caraili for about 5 minutes in salted water. Slit lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
  • Stuff the caraili with the mango kuchela. Tie the caraili with strings to keep the stuffing from falling out while frying.

The caraili could be stuffed with just about anything, such as mango kuchela, meat, fish, shrimp, etc.
