Since most of my veggies are coming from my garden, I decided to post this recipe. I am sure that not a lot of people knows this veggie but contained a lot of medicinal value. Pls. check this veggie:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitter_melon
A very unique dish and I am not sure that people will like unless you are an Asian descent. When I was still living in my old country, my helpers used to make this salad which from the beginning I was not fond ot it. But when I looked at the medicinal value of this veggie, then I decided to like it and now, I really like it.
So good!!!
