Ever heard of the never-ending list of positives of a vegetable... yet hated it with a passion? As it happens, on my list of vegetables having the best benefits ...and also having the worst taste on my tongue, is a vegetable that never features in any of my dreams... Bitter Gourd (Pavakka in Malayalam or Karela in Hindi).
But, you know, life's all about challenges; no pain, no gain; champions don't quit and all that. Also, it just so happened to be the only vegetable I could get my hands on when creativity struck. Parents are a HUGE fan of it.
