But the most interesting thing is that it is not applicable only in mathematics. It is applicable in many phases of life. The recipe that I am going to share today is 100% matched with the formula.
Food helps us to keep our body fit and active. In this case, green vegetables play a vital role which helps us to keep active and fit. Each vegetable has different food values. Among the green vegetables, Bitter Gourd is special. Many of our faces become distorted when we hear the name of bitter gourd. But it is invariably very good for us.
Bitter vegetables purify our blood and increase taste in our mouth. Bitter gourd plays a vigorous role to cure the disease of itching and helps to remove pimples. It has immense value for diabetic patients. It is really foolish to avoid such valuable vegetables.
From children to Adult, everyone should eat bitter gourd. Especially children and teenagers need to eat the vegetable much more. Usually, children are more likely to suffer from scabies. It is very beneficial for various skin problems like acne as teenagers mostly suffers from it.
The argument between the mother and her kids always continues for eating the bitter vegetable. Sometimes she gives up. And my today’s recipe is for those who have already given up. Dear, if you are fed up with your effort to feed your children the bitter vegetables, this recipe will solve your problem. If you already know the recipe that I am sharing today, then try it from time to time. And if you do not know the recipe, please try to cook this one immediately that I am sharing now.
I am telling now how the recipe follows the formula of minus multiply minus is equal to plus. As the bitter gourd is bitter to taste and it is appreciated less to all. On the other hand, I’m using dry fish which is not tasty food to all. So today’s“plus” recipe is mingling the two minutes.
Cook the recipe and see that it is very tasty to eat and also looks nice. The licorice taste of dry fish with the slight bitterness of bitter gourd is just amazing. Ah! Water is coming out of my mouth by uttering the name of the recipe.
NB: Small bitter gourds are tastier than the bigger one and the same as the potatoes. I prefer green chilies rather than using dry chilies as it is good for health. You can use your own preferred spices and ingredients.
