There was a time when I would flatly refuse to taste a bitter gourd dish. What changed that? Let me take you back to those days, when our marriage was a year old. J got posted to Sikkim. I joined him. As our accommodation wasn’t set, we used to dine at the Officer’s mess. One day, some bitter gourd dish was served. As usual, I avoided it. When I heard everyone at the table saying how good the bitter gourd dish was and it lacked it’s natural bitterness, I was intrigued. I took a spoonful of the dish just to taste. Surprise !! It wasn’t bitter at all. I liked the dish so much that I had a generous helping of it. Soon after our meal, I went to the chef and asked how he prepared it. Though there was no precise measurement, he explained the method of preparation.
Needless to say, this is my one and only favourite bitter gourd recipe, so far.
