Bitter gourd powder Sevai - Bitter Gourd Rice noodles - Healthy breakfast, dinner or snack recipe

Our family prefers flavoured sevai / iddiyappam over plain. Also if I do Iddiyappam for Friday night dinner, I purposely make more to do some flavoured iddiyappam for Saturday morning breakfast. My husband who doesn't touch bitter gourd didn't even recognize that he was eating bitter gourd. This is a perfect way to include bitter gourd as part of your diet or kids diet. This can be served as snack for after school kids / after work adults. This can be good breakfast item too
