Bitter gourd, also known as bitter melon, is a tropical and subtropical vine that is native to Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. It is commonly used in East and Southeast Asian cuisines, where it is valued for its distinctive bitter flavor.
Bitter gourd is often used in stir-fries, soups, and curries, as well as in traditional medicine. It can be sliced, diced, or julienned and added to dishes, or it can be stuffed with meat or vegetables and cooked. It can also be consumed raw, either as a juice or in salads.
Bitter gourd is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, folate, and zinc. It also contains antioxidants, which can help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
