Sri Lankan Boiled Bitter gourd Curry

karawila or bitter gourd is a very common vegetable in Asian countries. According to the Aurvedic medicine it has lots of health benefits. When we were kids we didn’t like the bitter taste at all. But after getting to know the value we started eating it. There are several types of bitter gourd. Dark green, small, and long ones. You can cook it in to a curry in different ways as well as can eat raw as a salad. The most tastier one is the fried salad .

Bitter melon juice benefits include helping to overcome type 2 diabetes.Bitter melon is very low in calories, carrying just 17 calories per 100 g.It is high in vitamin C too. To introduce bitter melon to us my mum used to tell about how you can improve health and skin conditions after eating bitter melon/gourd. So we used to swallow them with out biting to get the results. When I remember those days still I can laugh.
