Bitter guard , a veggie which most people don't like. My whole family is against this veggie, but I love this veggie so much. It will be delicious to have bitter guard fry with sambar. Coz of my husband, i am not at all preparing this nowadays. This time i forced him to get this and tried it in a different way as my friend suggested. I liked this way too...but still it was rejected by both my mom and hubby. I am posting it here to know how many of the world likes it. I don't know how many of you know this tip about bitter guard...when you buy bitter guard, buy the ones which are light green in colour. Those ones will have less bitterness in them.
