Bitter gourd salad

bitter gourd salad
This year we planted Indian bitter gourd also known as bitter melon and got a few. This is a delicious salad which isn't too bitter. We usually enjoy it with rice and other curries.

1 bitter gourd cut into slices 
onion to taste
1 green chillie
tomato to taste
lemon juice to taste
salt to taste
oil to fry
bitter gourd plant
Let the cut bitter gourd slices dry in the sun or absorb all its water using a paper towel. Without the water the bitter gourd will fry faster.

Fry in hot oil until it is golden brown. Leave it to cool in a rack.

Mix the salad when you are ready to eat. Mix all the ingredients together except for the fried bitter gourd pieces. Then add the bitter gourd pieces and toss it together.

    1. No you don’t need to remove it my family likes the crunch and it doesn’t make a difference taste wise. Just be cautious when you fry as it could spit oil. Hope everything is good in your end.
