But my family loves this Bittergourd and I make different dishes with bittergourd such as Bittergourd Theeyal, Bittergourd Pitlai etc. We can make plain bittergourd stir-fry which might be little bitter but if we add some masalas along with onion, tomato and potato then the bitterness is nicely reduced and this Bitter Gourd Masala Stir-Fry would be so inviting and appetizing and we would love to have more servings. Lets see how to make this yummy Bitter Gourd Masala Stir-Fry (Pavakkai Masala Curry)...
