Sweet And Tangy Stuffed Bittergourds


Hello everyone and welcome back. Today I’ll be making a recipe from bitter gourds which is a summer vegetable and can be found in plenty now in the markets. It is Sweet And Tangy Stuffed Bittergourds. I have made a similar recipe in one of my earlier blogs but there is a difference in both recipes because the stuffing of this recipe is sweet and tangy and the earlier one was a salty stuffing only. These bittergourds are really so spicy and tasty that you can’t avoid making them for your lunch and dinner platters. It can be best served with steamed rice, dal, some mashed potatoes, and poppadums. I love this preparation very much and I think it is the best way to make bittergourds interesting. So I am sharing this recipe with you all and I hope you will like it. So let’s start making the recipe—-
