Bitter Gourd is one vegetable that even adults try to avoid eating. But that's not the case with me. I have enjoyed having bitter gourd, thanks to my Mom. May be it's the way in which she prepared that made it easy for us to have it. Bitter Gourd is an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, C, magnesium, folic acid, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, dietary fiber and iron. It has double the quantity of beta carotine, calcium and potassium than in broccoli, spinach and banana respectively. I am sure with this recipe kids will never say no to bitter gourd. And there is no squeezing out (the essential nutrients) of bitter gourd to get rid of the bitterness.
