Bitter gourd, also know as bitter melon is widely used for food as well as herbal remedy for ailments such as diabetes, and healing wounds etc.
苦瓜又另名为凉瓜,广泛用于菜肴以及草药医疗于控制糖尿病及逐进伤口的愈合。

In Chinese cooking, it is commonly used as stir fry and soup ingredients. Many people are adverse to its bitter flavor but not for me and my partner. One of my maid just couldn't accept its bitter flavor no matter how hard I tried convincing her to.
在我们华人的日常烹饪中,都会有用来拌炒或做为汤料。家里的成员里,其中一位女佣就是怕那苦味而一一不能接受任何带有苦瓜和菜肴。

This morning I chanced upon some website which suggested adding some vinegar into the cooking of this fruit plant to remove the bitter flavor from it and it really works!

I am sharing this simple recipe in hope to encourage more people to accept bitter gourd into their daily diet.
