Don’t get scared to see Bitter melon (Some does like it for bitterness), Bitter melon is very healthy and good for you. I add some tips end of the recipe if you don’t want to use onion or if you skip frying the fish option. Instead of Hilsa fish you can use shrimp / prawn. Please try this authentic Bangladeshi recipe. Thanks.
