Green, pod-shaped and covered in what seems like blisters all over its skin – this distinct looking vegetable-fruit definitely does not look pleasing to the eyes. Like its name implies, bitter gourd has an acrid bitter flavour that may be difficult for many to appreciate. However, looking past that ‘slightly disturbing’ appearance and sharp taste, this bumpy-looking vegetable is an excellent source of vitamins and is packed with a long list of nutritional properties.
Fish head and bittergourd sounds like a bizarre combination. But trust us, it’s a pretty addictive dish especially for bittergourd lovers.
The sweetness and delicate texture of fish head and the contrasting bitter after-taste and crunchiness of the bittergourd makes it an interesting and exciting dish!
