Grandma’s Bitter Gourd White Pickle
Pavakka Achar / Bitter Gourd pickle is a classic Kerala Pickle, spicy, tangy and certainly not bitter! Bitter Gourd is loaded with nutrients and minerals and is great for diabetes patients, as it has blood sugar controlling properties. Pavakka, also known as Kaipakka and Karela, aids in lowering cholesterol levels as well. Many people dislike Pavakka because of its bitterness; Vinegar in the Pavakka Pickle controls bitterness and so, it tastes awesome just like Kadumanga/ mango pickle, sweet and sour Dates lime pickle or any other pickle.
