Bitter gourd is generally said to effectively clears our body heatiness, but besides that it has excellent medicinal virtues too.
It improves the conditions of people with diabetes, piles, constipation, blood disorders, respiratory disorders, alcoholism, cholera, etc.
But, do not consume more than 2 bitter gourds a day. It can cause mild abdominal pain and diarrhoea. And excessive consumption can result to preterm labor for pregnant women.
I like to cook bitter gourd this way because it won't taste bitter and not so oily compared to cooking it with meat. :)
