For lack of no nice green vegetables to buy in Tesco one day, I decided to get some bitter gourd. Was actually intending to cook bitter gourd chicken with black diced beans....but lack of vegetables....
So, I added wolfberries and egg and made in a semi vege dish! Surprise surprise, boyboy ate up ONE strip of bitter gourd. He puuuuhhhhed out the 2nd though.
I did do the 'salt' treatment but it was not entirely everything not bitter. Frankly I do like it a little bit bitter.
Also, becuase boyboy was naughty and took the bitter gourd himself with his hands, we told him he had to finish it which he did. I tried my luck passing him a second one which since he didn't take, he knew he need not 'really' finish!
