Yesterday I did a post on "Growing Spiky Bitter Gourd in my garden" and you can click here to read if you have missed it. The fruits did not mature all at the same time and it was a good thing that the harvest was spaced out with 1 or 2 fruits at a time.
With freshly harvested greens from my garden, I have no excuse not to cook. Today I share with you how I use/cook my freshly harvested spiky bitter gourds.
