  1. Bitter gourd sabji and pachadi are a favourite in our house too. Earlier my daughter used to hate it. But off-late he has picked up the taste and started liking it.

  2. That is such a simple recipe! You know, just the other day, hubby and I were discussing looking for easy to make bitter gourd recipes that did not taste bitter..and here you shared it for FT!

    Thank you so much! 🙂

  3. My family also liked Bitter Gourd. I had bitter goured in sambhar once and I liked it. In this recipe, there is no tempering? I am going to try it very soon.

  4. I know bitterguard has so many health benefits and my mom always tells me to have it in lunch! But I cant fall in love with this bitterness! he he 🙂
    Your this recipe sounds interesting because I love curd so much. So I think, I should try this once atleast.

  5. While we like bitter gourd, we have never made it with curd. I think the addition of curd would mask the bitter taste and would taste good too. Will try it out. Thanks for the recipe, Vasantha!

  6. Thanks for the recipe, Vasantha.

    I love any variation of raita & making bitter gourd palatable with it piques my interest. I think I’ll try it by shallow frying & adding it to the pachadi. 🙂

  7. Recently I have started liking bitter gourd and it’s Benefits to our health. I have tried it and mixed the masalas but this time I will try it in currently too

  8. I am not very fond of bitter gourd and we have it generally as a fried thing. This one sounds nice, will try it sometime.
