Used as both food and medicine, the bitter gourd has a sharp bitter taste but is excellent for its healing properties. Organic Bitter Gourd (karela) is a very much-loved vegetable in Asian cuisine, where its medical advantages are praised, especially for its capacity to bring down blood sugar in diabetics. It is a tropical vegetable; which gets its name from its bitter flavour. It is a great source of dietary fibre, Vitamin A, B6, C, and Folate. It’s ideal to cook it with sweet and tangy flavours to cut down the bitterness. You can even pickle these.
