Ever since knowing how to prevent bitter gourd from being too bitter, I started to enjoy eating bitter gourd. This fried bitter gourd omelette is a very easy dish to prepare and I was happy that my hubby likes it. Even my niece enjoys this vegetable which most young people may not fancy at all.
I should have cooked the whole portion which uses 4 eggs, then we didn't have to fight for it.
