Bitter Gourd Fry

My husband hates Bitter gourd. This week he is away on a biz so we get to do what we like :-). My  kids have different preference when comes to making bitter gourd. My first son likes this one and my 2nd Bitter Gourd roast. I am ok with either one. This requires bit more oil.

1/4 teaspoon sugar
Salt per taste
