Bitter melon or bitter gourd has been traditionally used in Chinese and Ayurveda medicine for detoxing and to help treat type 2 diabetes among other things. Usually, seeds and pith are discarded and the flesh is cooked in a variety of ways. In this recipe I am using a smaller more bitter time of gourd called the Karela and it is an Indian variety.
