My hubby never liked bitter gourd at all….  But now he loves this dish only this dish lemme tell ya he had so much of fuss when I used to do kosambari nd all…  I used to relish it all alone J J J I loved doing tht sometimes and made him feel he is missing something :P.
One fine day when I made this dish he loved it… he never got the bitter taste…. Neither did he complain about the dish he just called me nd told It was Yumm!! Nd his colleagues seconded tht !!!! 
I make it atleast once in 2 weeks or so… And all at his office relish it

Bitter gourd is a vegg i dont like . I think it is because mom used to make then and even if we didn't like we had to eat thel, but i love when they are dried and deep fried.
