Bitter Gourd Palya
Many will be horrified knowing that there is a dish/palya made by bitter gourd on the menu :), some people just avoid it to have because of its bitterness, so much of circus is done to reduce its bitterness like washing it after chopping/keeping it adding salt & then squeezing it completely/by adding so many spices, but what i feel is in doing so it only makes it more bitter, so one need to be cool with it, since the nature of bitter gourd is bitter itself, one must not expect it to be sweet like honey, right ?
